On Monday, November 5th the 3rd grade chorus at Kimberly Elementary presented a patriotic program filled with great music and articulate U.S. history facts. In honor of Election Day 2012, students wore red, white and blue as they performed songs honoring our nation.
“Under the direction of our music teacher and teacher of the year, Mr. Richard Harris, the chorus presented a patriotic program filled with great music and important history,” explained Jennifer Saunders, a teacher at Kimberly.
Students also presented a brief history of the United States, beginning with Betsy Ross and ending with the 2008 election of President Barack Obama.
“This proved to be meaningful, not only for the participating students, but for the attentive audience members of students and parents,” Saunders said.
During the program, parents and guests were encouraged to exercise their right to vote in this year’s election. The program helped students understand the importance of Election Day and voting throughout the United States.
