Our school had an assembly this morning for elementary students and teachers.
Our principal talked breifly about the tragedy and assured the students that
they
should not hesitate to come to him, the counselor or any teacher if they
needed to
talk about their feelings. and then of course talk to their parents. He
went on to assure them that they were safe in our school - we were taking all
precautions to protect them and that they should feel
safe here in our school. We then said the
Pledge of Allegiance" and sang the "Star Spangled Banner". All children were
attentive and polite. We were so proud of them taking it so seriously.
