    September 11th
    By Lori

    Our school has a policy of not teaching about 9/11 but if children bring it up we may speak to them privately. I ran in the Tunnel to Towers run last year and will do so again this year. It is the hope of the fire fighters that eventually this day will be set aside for hero day. A day to honor ALL men and women who put their lives on the line each day. I hope that September 11th will not become one of those days we have poems for, or writing frames. I teach second grade and the children might not even remember the day. We send home a letter just reminding parents of the event and explaining our position. I have personal reasons for my position, but I am glad that my school has decided to handle it the way they have. Just my two cents.
