Lady Liberty

This week, Lady Liberty visited our elementary school. Lady Liberty is a traveling civics course designed to empower children and promote healthy citizenship.

This was Blinky's first year to participate, but Stinky's second. Both were equally excited to come home and tell me what they learnt, including:

  • the history and purpose of the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island
  • the role Ellis Island played in early immigration to the United States
  • how to give back to the community
  • how to recognize and honor individuals who go the extra mile for their community
  • and most importantly, drum roll please...why Lady Liberty is green [patina]
I am so pleased the kiddos thoroughly enjoyed the program and retained so much information. They are well on their way to becoming a few of the Next Great Americans!
