Students at Carl Sandburg Middle School, many wearing red, white and blue shirts, packed the auditorium September 12 to view a special program marking the 15th anniversary of the terror attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.
The students, most of whom were not even born yet when the attacks took place, heard from a number of speakers about the events of that day, viewed videos, and also heard positive messages about unity and volunteerism. The program started with presentation of Colors, a performance of 'Taps,' and a minute of silence for the victims of that tragic day. Social Studies Department Chair Steve Simons opened the program and introduced the speakers, including:
- Principal Dawn Kelly, who narrated a visual description of the morning of 9/11/2001
- US Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick
- PA Rep. Frank Farry
- Superintendent Joseph Jones III
- Assistant Superintendent Dr. Gloria Hancock
- Danielle Bush from the United Way of Bucks County
