Constitution Day is recognized on September 17, the day in which the delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia agreed to and signed the U.S. Constitution in 1787. Every year Central High School seniors receive a personal pocket U.S. Constitution to use throughout their government course and to keep as a guidebook in life. After analyzing the meaning of each of the lines in the Preamble, senior government students worked on memorizing the Preamble. The seniors then visited each of the elementary classrooms to lead the young students in reciting the Preamble. The seniors gifted the elementary students with a flag for trying their best; they were impressed with how well the elementary students did with some of the more difficult words such as “posterity.”
Seniors included their classmate Skyla from the self-contained classroom who visited the self-contained classroom at the elementary school. Thank you to paraprofessional Tabitha Hyatt for coordinating with the government teacher to include Skyla in this special activity.
Thank you, also, to Library Media Specialist Mrs. Hughes for compiling the pictures and videos to create a video presentation which was broadcast on the Cougar Broadcasting Network’s morning news program. The video presentation can also be viewed on the school website at www.coosaschools.org/Domain/9. Senior government students will continue their analysis of the U.S. Constitution, including each of the seven articles and the 27 amendments. A culminating activity will be a comprehensive essay in which the seniors write about the principles of government embedded in the U.S. Constitution, using the articles and amendments as evidence of each of the principles.
