Students celebrate Constitution
FIRTH — Constitution Day was Friday. To remember this event, elementary students dressed in a sea of red, white and blue at A. W. Johnson Elementary in Firth.
"The Constitution is the highest law of the country," kindergartner Aiden Clayson said.
The Constitution was taught to each class, grades kindergarten through fourth, throughout the week. Kindergarten teacher and counselor Mary Harshbarger taught these classes.
At the Firth Middle School, students participated in a poster contest. The winners were Allie Gibson, Hannah Esplin, Victor Burkhart and Savannah Brewington.
At the Firth High School, students in Scott Adams' government class wrote essays about the Constitution.
"The Constitution of the United States is the base foundation for our laws and legal systems," wrote sophomore Brett Skaar. "It gives us our rights and holds the power for each house of representatives."
In his essay, Brett outlined an overview of the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution, and then briefly explained the articles of the document.
