Celebrating our heritage of freedom with the Statue of Liberty's Birthday Celebration, working towards a resolution of the POW/MIA situation, promoting pride in America, and ensuring that the public will never forget the sacrifices of America's soldiers who protect our freedom.

Americanism Program

The goals of the Americanism program are to promote patriotism, teach students about our American heritage, demonstrate the proper care of the U.S. Flag, and ensure that the public will never forget the sacrifices made by America’s soldiers.
