It's time for Star Spangled Friday!
The words to our national anthem, or "The Star Spangled Banner", were written by Francis Scott Key, a gifted amateur poet. He was inspired to write this poem when he saw the American flag flying over Fort McHenry on September 14. 1814. The fort had endured a 20 hour bombardment of shells and rockets from British warships. Key originally named his poem "Defence of Fort M'Henry". Today, our national anthem is performed by 7th grader Josephine Sturmer.
Today’s lunch is chicken fingers.
Earth Day is this Thursday, April 22. There are simple changes you can make to help keep our earth healthy. Today’s tip: Use a reusable lunch bag! Plastic bags often end up where we don’t want them, like in our rivers and in the ocean, where they pollute the water and harm marine life. Instead of putting your lunch in a single-use plastic bag, upgrade to a reusable lunchbox!
