Washington Drive Primary School second graders in Jacinta Pisano/Gale Ambrosio and Millie Rivera’s classes presented their show “Symbols of America” to family members on March 30 as part of their America unit.

Students dressed in their best red, white and blue and dedicated the show to all of the men and women keeping the country safe and free. During the show, each student presented a fact to the audience about American symbols. These included facts on the White House, American Flag, Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell, George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln.  

The group also performed a number of patriotic songs together such as “God Bless America,” “This Land is Your Land” and “You’re A Grand Old Flag.” Music teacher Laura Pomerantz accompanied the students on the piano.

At the conclusion of the performance, students and family members enjoyed a table of treats and refreshments provided by parents in the class.
