Once again CSIHSIS students remembered those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks as well as those who performed heroic acts engaging in the resuce. CSIHSIS students today recognized 9/11 as a National Day of Service. To honor those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks and in the aftermath students collected funds to donate to the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in the name of fallen firefighter and Staten Island resident Daniel Libretti. Students pledged to do service for at least one member of our school community on 9/11 in addition to the service learning projects they do throughout the year.
In the spirit of 9/11 as a National Day of Service and to foster tolerance and global awareness, in their advisories students brainstormed how they can be of service to our school community, the Staten Island community, and to our global community as the first step towards designing their service learning projects. As always, we are proud of our students' generosity and their willingness to give of themselves in service to others.
Further, a segment of our junior students' summer project involved learning about different perspectives on 9/11 as well designing and creating a memorial to those who lost their lives as a result of the attacks. To view our students work, visit our school where it is displayed in the showcases in our main lobby.
