Student Essay: The Twin Towers

Written by McKenzie Van Dam, 6th Grade

"The Twin Towers" by McKenzie Van Dam

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists took control of two U.S. inbound flights and crashed them into the two World Trade Towers located in New York City, USA. This act of terrorism took the lives of 2,996 people, including the lives of those on the planes, at the Pentagon, and the lives of the hijackers.

The terrorists belonged to a group called Al-Queda, which was led by Osama bin Laden. He claimed that the attacks came due to the presence of the U.S. military troops in Saudi Arabia and sanctions against Iraq.

Picture Day is this Friday, September 11th! Notes and packets have been sent home with your children, so please be sure to look over those. We want everyone to come to school that day (and every day) with a big smile ready to share. We love Picture Day because it means that school is back in full swing!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Gina Warren

Parent teacher conferences are almost here! On Wednesday, Sept. 23rd, from 2:10-8:00pm, please take advantage of an opportunity to visit your child's classroom and conference with his/her teacher. This is a wonderful time to see how your child is doing in school, the quality of work he/she is doing, and talk about the needs and successes of your child. Below is a link to sign up for a time to meet with your child's teacher. We can't wait to see you!
