Students and teachers welcomed representatives of the Manchester Police and Fire Departments and City Alderman Bill Barry to campus today for a prayer service honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Principal Mr. Michael McLaughlin offered remarks during the program: “For those of us who lost someone close or otherwise experienced the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, thinking and talking about 9-11 can still be very difficult. Today, we pray for the victims, survivors, heroes, and their families.”
The 132 students, their teachers, parents, and the emergency personnel then paused for a moment of silence before offering a prayer and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
The students then recited the Prayer of Saint Francis in praying for our local emergency response personnel.
If you have any additional photos from the morning, please send them to Mr. McLaughlin.
