MONARCH — Monarch Elementary School recently had a very special visitor who helped the school celebrate a day commemorating a very special day in American history and the very special document completed and signed that day.
The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States of America. It was drafted and signed by the delegates attending the Constitutional Convention of 1787. The signing took place on Sept. 17, 1787, and today, more than two centuries later, Sept. 17 is Constitution Day which commemorates the signing.
Last week Monarch Elementary School celebrated Constitution Day with a very special program featuring a very special guest.
One of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention and one of the signers of the Constitution was Benjamin Franklin and it was Franklin who was Monarch Elementary School’s very special guest for Constitution Day.
Franklin (MES Student Body President Tanner Hardin) read the Preamble to the Constitution to the students at Monarch Elementary in a live broadcast of WMES News during the school’s Constitution Day celebration.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
