Star Spangled Banner Day

Image result for spangled banner clipartWednesday, September 14th is the 202nd anniversary of the writing of the "Star Spangled Banner". All Newport Primary Students in grades K-2 will be gathering at the World Peace Bell at 10:00 a.m. for a brief ceremony. We will say the Pledge of Allegiance, learn about the history of the song, sing the "Star Spangled Banner" and then the World Peace Bell will ring to end our ceremony. Permission slips for this event will be sent home will all students.

Here is a copy of the lyrics so you may help your child practice.

Oh say, can you see by the dawn's early light,
what so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
over the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 
Oh say, does that star spangled banner yet wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Back to School Bash was a Blast!

The 2016 Back to School Bash was bigger and better!  The heat and threat of rain did not keep us from having a well attended event.  This year, a Wildcat Hustle Run was added and attendees were treated to the sound of the Wildcat Band!  Click on the Photo Gallery (under Quick Links)!
