In observance of the 200th anniversary of the writing of the National Anthem, more than 600 elementary students took in a special performance Friday of the high school marching band, which included the half-time show and a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. “Every year in September we learn the National Anthem, but this year we decided to make it a week-long event,” music teacher Tracey Notestine said. Students studied the history, vocabulary and lyrics of the national anthem in music classes in advance of this weekend’s bicentennial celebration of the song. See Page 8 for a related story.
