Shughart Elementary, under the supervision of principals Dr. Carolyn Carr (Shughart Elementary) and Dr. Diane Brown (Poole Elementary), remembered 9/11 with an 8:45 am Flag Ceremony on Monday, September 11, 2017. The entire student body of Shughart Elementary and the 2nd-5th grade students of Poole Elementary assembled Monday morning beside the flag pole with honored guests from Linden Oaks Fire Station #6 to include Captain Ryan Simmons. Mrs. Jacquetta Evans, Shughart's Music Education Specialist, coordinated the event. There was a welcome given by Dr. Brown, a statement of occasion by Dr. Carr with a moment of silence observed, then the posting of the U.S. flag by five fifth grade students. The Shughart Pirates and Poole Pathfinders recited the "Pledge of Allegiance", then sang the "National Anthem" as led and directed by Mrs. Evans. Dr. Carr acknowledged appreciation of the Linden Oaks Firefighters and presented each of them with certificates. We remember and will tell the new generations to come. Thank you for your service.
