On Monday, September 12, 2011, at 8:00 a.m., the students will begin their commemoration in front of the high school building. They will form a circle around the flag pole and begin the day by saying a prayer and reading a poem in memory of all those who died or were injured on that tragic day of September 11, 2001.
