Proud to Be an American

Students of Washington Drive Primary School honored the spirit of Memorial Day during their annual kindergarten Memorial Day parade and patriotic performance. Though the rain prevented students from marching in the outdoor parade, it did not stifle their American spirit as they sang familiar tunes such as “America the Beautiful,” “Grand Old Flag,” and a touching version of “Proud to Be an American” that left the audience of parents and grandparents misty-eyed. The audience sang along and encouraged the spirited students, who proudly wore red, white and blue and waved the American flags and handmade firecracker crafts they had created in class.
