    FROM THE DESK OF PRINCIPAL MCELMEEL

    A MOMENT IN HISTORY
    I would like all of us to take a moment to recall the events of September 11th.  
    Today is September 11.  On this date in 2001, a series of terrorist attacks destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center and severely damaged the Pentagon.  This was one of the deadliest terrorist acts on American soil. Commercial airliners were hijacked and flown directly into the three buildings. On this day, we remember those who were killed and those who were wounded.  This event impacted us all. We joined together as one, and even today, we must still stay united as one. From the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”
     
    This historical reading selection was brought to you by Skyline’s Social Studies Department.

    Fall College Visits for this week:.
