Remembering those lost on 9/11

As the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001 pass from memory to history for the next generation, local students are being reminded this week that freedom has a price.

The Byrnes Freshman Academy hosted a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony Tuesday morning, honoring the lives lost 17 years ago.

The morning class made the trek from the Bonds Career Center.

In turnout gear, the students carried the American flag to the Greer Fire Department in observance of the 17th anniversary of the deaths of the 343 firefighters at the World Trade Center and in honor of other Sept. 11, 2001, victims.

Country Day School students wrapped up summer activities with a lesson on pioneers.

During their final week, children dressed as the early settlers of America and performed actives such as shaking jars filled with cream in order to make butter.
