What better way for all of us to seek our destiny than by reviewing and observing the past. St. Lucie County School District’s F. K. Sweet Elementary School students Shadalou Fernandez, Danielle Murray, Kate Bachmeyer, and Lani’ Chambers were announced as winners in a recent patriotic art contest at the school. Participating students learned the history of many American symbols as they completed their patriotic drawings.
As part of the contest at Francis K. Sweet Elementary School-- kindergarten, first and second grade students studied the Liberty Bell; third and fourth grade students learned about the nation’s first flag; and fifth grade students learned about the iconic Rosie The Riveter character from World War II; students included an essay with their art. We never stop learning if we reach out to learn. See attached list with interesting information on the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross (first U.S. flag), and Rosie the Riveter.
