Happy Fourth of July

Today, we celebrate the birth of the greatest nation, The United States Of American.  Our leaders in 1776 declared independence from the Kingdom Of Great Britain – thus the birth of America.  236 years of freedom and still going strong.    Our freedom symbol, recognized world wide is our Flag, the Flag of the United States Of America.  Display her proudly and properly. Let our heart and mind know that our men and women in the armed forces protect our country and our flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic. May our country, in dealing with other countries – May she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.  ~By Jim McShane

Curriculum Resources:
Rhoda Cratty describes books and websites from this dramatic and turbulent period in our history (1775-1776).  These resources and Cratty’s post on the Declaration of Independence, will, according to Cratty help students “begin to understand the history behind the fireworks.” Click here for the resource list.

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Labor Day

The first Monday of September we celebrate Labor Day. A day to recognize our American workers’, who keep the nation’s economic train on it’s tracks. Although, we are all aware this Labor Day our nation has record unemployment and economic uncertainty.

As we gather with family and friends to enjoy this holiday – which may include baseball, picnics, beach or a pool party – lets remember those family members, friends and Americans struggling.

Lastly, of course, many Americans’, who are in the armed forces serving overseas, will be without their families this holiday. Take a moment and give thanks to the men and women in uniform. The Americans in uniform and our civilians overseas do ensure our freedom to enjoy this holiday in this great nation of ours.

Happy Labor Day
