The American Legion essay contest gave our students a great opportunity to reflect upon what Americanism means. Through the process of writing the essay, the children realized ways that they display Americanism or Patriotism every day. Thursday night the winners were presented with a certificate and monetary award at the American Legion’s monthly meeting. The students were able to speak with the Veterans who were very impressed with all of the essays submitted. Congratulations to our 4th and 5th grade winners! Maggie Kotchessa, Madison Trapanese, Matthew Moyer, Anthony Donnini, Meksha Patel, and absent from photo, Olivia Ford-Venticinque.
