Our September 11th tribute began with patriotic songs played by Atkinson band musicians: Anigh Shell, Dylan Woodward and Marlon Teruel Flores, and led by Mr. Federici.  As students and teachers entered the building, they were uplifted and moved by the performance.  At 9:31, students and staff had a moment of silence that was followed by Ashley Retzlaff singing, “America the Beautiful” over the loud speaker.  She did an outstanding job! Throughout the day, the teachers taught a lesson created by our Social Studies Lead Teachers, Karen Heins and Jennifer Ferrarelli, that focused on acts of heroism and specifically, "The Man in the Red Bandana."  We couldn’t be more impressed with the teamwork and showcase of talent among the adults and the students.
