Memorial Day Ceremony with Neighbors

On this past Thursday I experienced one of the most memorable experiences since I have been Principal at the Lynn Woods School.  The third and fourth graders, under the supervision of the music teacher Ms. Carroll, performed at the Briar Cliff Lodge.    When we arrived we learned that some of the folks from the Briar Cliff had also prepared poems and songs for us as well.  It was such a wonderful treat to have two generations come together and celebrate with song and poetry.  The Lynn English High School ROTC drill team also joined us and completed one of their award winning drills for the group.  All eyes were on them as they performed with precision and accuracy.  They are truly talented and remarkable young role models.  At the conclusion of our show the Briar Cliff members presented our students with flags and our student’s gave their patriot hearts that they created in art class to the seniors.  It was truly an up lifting experience and a perfect way to kick off the long Memorial Day week-end.
