On September 11, students and staff of Gurney Elementary in Chagrin Falls remembered the tragic events of 9/11 by wearing red, white and blue. “It was an impressive sea of our flag all day long,” said Teacher Lisa Dugach.

“For the entire week, we focused on learning the Pledge of Allegiance in kindergarten and understanding what words like allegiance, pledge, liberty, and justice actually mean. As a class, we connected to our school’s recognition of First Responders and being a patriot (brave, courage, strong, helping, caring, kind). We then talked a lot about what we can do to be a patriot for our country and connected this to Gurney’s Tiger Pride. If we are polite and helpful, if we don’t quit and encourage others, we can keep the USA a great place to live and somewhere we are proud to reside—even if we are 5 or 6 years old and live in Chagrin Falls!”
