Oh, say can you sing?

June 07, 2007

Deborah Lopez, general music teacher at Bester Elementary School, gave students a challenge to learn the words of our national anthem. One hundred fifty-six Bester Elementary first- through fifth-grade students accepted that challenge and successfully learned the words to the "The Star-Spangled Banner." During music class, students learned the history behind the writing of the song, the meaning of the words and appropriate etiquette when hearing and singing it. Each student who successfully learned the words to the national anthem received a red or blue patriotic wrist band.
