This past week, all Haskell and Wanaque School students and staff participated in the National Anthem Project. The goal of this project is to assure that all students recognize and can sing the “Star Spangled Banner” and that they know about Francis Scott Key and what inspired him to write the anthem. On the 200th anniversary of the writing of the National Anthem, the entire student body in both schools sang the anthem in unison. It’s a tough song for some of our younger students, but they rose to the challenge! Feel free to sing it at home! The lyrics are below.

Thank you.
Mrs. Spirko

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help earn money for our school.  Since we joined the program, we have earned over $17,000 from Box Tops for Education.  Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school.

Please support the Box Tops and Labels for Education Programs!

• Clip the Box Tops symbol with the 10¢/expiration date from the hundreds of participating products and send them to school.

• Sign up to support our school at boxtops4education.com, where you can:

Please save your Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education and place them in an envelope or plastic bag.  You can give them to your child's teacher or place them in the big pink box in the school office.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL THE ENVELOPE/BAG WITH THE TEACHER'S NAME — we award prizes of snack certificates to the classes with the most points, and the overall winning class gets a pizza party in June!
