Students celebrate early

PULASKI — Independence Day came a month early at Pulaski Elementary School.
With miniature homemade American flags waving wildly, the school’s entire class of enthusiastic first graders — taught by Diane Dalton, Jan Booker, Conchita Robinson, Gayle Kiser and Rebecca Moles — paraded across the school’s campus toward the flag pole.
Once they reached their destination, the students and teachers — many whom were clad in red, white and blue — gathered around the pole, where they recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang the National Anthem, followed by “America the Beautiful.”
To top off their celebration, the students marched back toward the school, where they enjoyed a treat of red, white and blue Popsicles.
Along with simply being a fun afternoon activity, this celebration was also a learning experience.
Dalton explained that one of the state SOL (Standards of Learning) requirements for first grade students is to learn about national holidays.
Being a national holiday, Independence Day (July 4) was one among the numerous holidays the Pulaski Elementary School students discussed in class.
However, by July 4, the students will be long gone from their classrooms at Pulaski Elementary School.

Hence, the celebration was held a month early on June 4.
Along with learning about and discussing the meaning of this holiday, the students decorated flags in their classes and refreshed their memories on patriotic songs to prepare for the celebration, and they were encouraged to wear patriotic colors on the day of the event.
