National Anthem Project

The children at the Lower School participated in The National Anthem Project, a public awareness campaign sponsored by the National Association for Music Education to revive America’s patriotism by educating Americans about the importance of The Star-Spangled Banner.

While the crowd gathered in front of the school, some practiced cheering for the Bruins.

Some chose to show their patriotism the old fashioned way.

It was a beautiful morning filled with respectful singing of our national anthem with some Bruin pride in there, too.
