Thank you so very much for your tremendous work on the bicentennial of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Your website, music and videos, articles, ideas, logo, etc… and etc… were extremely beneficial as my fellow teachers and I planned lessons on the singing and significance of the anthem for our PreK-eighth grade students. Our study culminated with the entire school and staff, in addition to several parents and grandparents, all dressed in red, white and blue, waving flags, sporting SSM Day logo stickers and singing at the front flag pole on September 14 and with afternoon patriotic popsicles. Our students gained a new or renewed sense of patriotism and appreciation for our national anthem. And many parents thanked us for the celebration–which wouldn’t have happened without all of your efforts. So, Happy Star Spangled Day to you too and thanks!
