An Independence Day celebration came early for students enrolled in the Bilingual and English as a Second Language summer school program at Burton Elementary School. During the week of June 23, the students completed activities focusing on the importance of Independence Day and what it means to be a proud American.

To commemorate their studies, the students took part in an indoor parade, where they dressed in patriotic attire. They also gathered in the school’s cafeteria to perform chants and songs for their parents and summer school staff.

“The teachers and staff did an outstanding job of incorporating Independence Day activities within the guidelines of our summer school program,” said Elizabeth Williams, Summer School Principal at Burton Elementary School. “Students were actively engaged in many hands-on experiences, and just truly enjoyed themselves.”
