Ogden Elementary celebrates nation, US Constitution

Video

Body

Kids at Ogden Elementary are celebrating our nation. The local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution helped the kids celebrate the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution.

Members of the DAR dressed the part and talked with students about the importance of the Constitution, its three parts, and why North Carolina took so long to ratify it.

Some students signed a pledge to read the Constitution in its entirety.

Student Sarah Cajigas said, “I learned that the Constitution was signed on September 17th.”

“They need to understand how important the Constitution is to our way of life, and how important it is for them to understand and study and be educated so that they are good citizens when they start voting,” said Patricia Harden of Daughters of the American Revolution.

The daughters will have visited 2,000 local students by the time the week is over.
