Last night our school put on our Patriotic Program. Every year we alternate between doing a Christmas Program or a Patriotic Program. Each grade decorates the gym with patriotic decorations and is assigned a number to sing, along with speaking parts. While the other grades are singing, we take the students back to our rooms to wait for the grand finale. The grand finale takes some logistical coordinating, but we manage to bring all grades, K-6th out on stage, on the steps to the stage and around the outside edges of the gym to sing. Our final numbers were My Country Tis of Thee and America (by Neal Diamond). Every time we do the Patriotic Program the numbers are different and the speaking parts change, but the one thing that never changes is the amazing feelings of patriotism that fill the gym.
