Canon-Mac Spotlight: National Anthem Anniversary Celebrated at Cecil Intermediate School
A celebration was held recently at Cecil Intermediate School to honor and observe the 200-year anniversary of the penning of our National Anthem.
Participants gathered around the flagpole in front of the building Sept. 12 – where 11 sixth-graders read a brief history of the War of 1812, and the events that led Francis Scott Key to write the poem that would become our National Anthem.
Those students included: Madison, Caroline, Mallory , Owen , Hayley , Carrera , Ty , Sarah , Braiden, Liz and Alexis .
The event concluded with a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” by four students from the Canon-McMillan High School ensemble - Bella – who sang the anthem a cappella. Those students included: junior tenor Drew , senior alto Amber , senior soprano Brianna and junior bass Nick . Their director is Ms. Maggie Sisson.
Cecil Intermediate music teacher Cheri McIlvaine said the event reinforced what her sixth-graders have been studying: Not only our National Anthem’s history, but also its lyrics and how to sing the tune accurately.
The mission of the Canon-McMillan School District, in partnership with the community, is to invest in our greatest resource, our students. We strive to teach, challenge and support all students to prepare them for college and careers with the information and skills necessary to compete, achieve and serve as leaders in a global economy as ethical and responsible citizens.
The vision of the Canon-McMillan School District is to graduate all students with the ethical and effective communication, critical and creative thinking skills necessary for success in an evolving global economy.
