Se­cond-grader MarKeith Demby said, “Be­ing an Amer­i­can means be­ing free to be your­self. Like, you can wear the clothes you like and go to school where you want. I am glad I live in Amer­ica.”

Said Li­lah Wool­ford: “Amer­ica is a good place where peo­ple fight for our countr y.”

The gath­er­ing ended with the school recit­ing the Pledge of Al­le­giance to­gether.

Me­dia Spe­cial­ist Jamie Welch, who helped or­ga­nize the event, said, “It’s im­por­tant our stu­dents un­der­stand that the Con­sti­tu­tion is what Amer­ica is founded on. We honor it at Grasonville by cel­e­brat­ing that part of our his­tory.”

Grasonville El­e­men­tary School stu­dents grades pre-k through fifth grades stand to­gether to re­cite the Pledge of Al­le­giance out­side of the school while cel­e­brat­ing Con­sti­tu­tion Day on Fri­day, Sept. 16.
