It was a special morning with the sun rising over South Jordan Middle School as students, staff, District leaders and members of the community gathered to remember that freedom is not free. The school held a Sunrise Salute to Patriot Day.
There was a flag raising ceremony along with patriotic songs to pay tribute to all first responders and to recognize the 16th anniversary of 9/11. It was also an opportunity to educate a generation of students who did not live through the tragedy of 9/11.
With the start of a new school year, it is a perfect time to remind children about safety on the school bus.
