Posted on September 12, 2017, in Academics, Events

Edinboro Elementary third graders completed an activity on September 11 yesterday.

Students then wrote about both their heroes from 9/11 and their everyday heroes, with their reasons why to support their selections. On Friday, the teachers read two different books to teach the kids about the historic event.

Here were some of their responses to “My Hero Is …. ”

“The Army because they found Osama bin Laden. My every day hero is my Grandma because she cooks a lot of food.”

“Chief Pitch from September 11th because he saved a lot of people. My everyday hero is my mom because she helps me, loves me and feeds me.”

“The firefighter community on Sep. 11, 2001, they risked their lives to save other people, but still a lot of people and firefighter lost their lives. Another hero is my dad because he used to be a policeman and in the war and he is really nice and cares for other people.”  

“The fighter community on September 11, 2001. They were brave to rescue people for the Twin Towers. Another hero is my mom and she does all the laundry and cleans the house and takes care of us and we love her so much and she is the best.” 

“The police officer community on Sep. 11, 2011. They helped and made sure people were safe after the Twin Towers fell. Another hero to me is my mom. She writes math text book[s] for children to learn.

“The military people helped searched for Osama bin Laden when he hid in the mountains. They also help innocent people. My everyday hero is my family because when I fall they help me up. They teach me how to ride my bike.”

“The police because they help our community and they catch the bad guys. My other hero is my kitten Leo. He plays with me, he sits with me and he is always there for me.”

Great jobs students!
