Middle School Presents
Living Colors of America
Hasbrouck Heights Middle School
took part in a Patriotic Tribute Day on September 11th, 2002. Each grade level
wore red, white, or blue shirts to form the "Living Colors of America," a human
flag, which was photographed from the roof of the school.
Mr. Luongo, Mr. Bolcar, and Mrs. Powell addressed the gathering briefly then the students
read a few inspirational poems and an original essay about heroes, unity, and patriotism.
Everyone observed a moment of silence to remember those whole lives were changed by the
tragic events of Last September. To close the ceremony, Alyson H. led the Middle School in
singing the National Anthem.
Additional pictures can be viewed
in the Middle School hallway along with the quilt and banner that the students made.
