High School Students Take Part in 9/11 Remembrance
East High School Hosts Flag Ceremony in Observance

Denver – As the nation remembers the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, many schools are now filled with students who were born after the tragedy. To learn, reflect and ensure that students are aware of the impact of the 2001 attacks, cadets in the East High School Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program marked the occasion with a flag ceremony.

 

Bugles sounded as the uniformed JROTC Color Guard cadets marched in formation with their sabers and ceremoniously raised the United States and Colorado flags to the top of the pole, then back down to rest at half-staff in honor of the 3,000 civilians and first responders who lost their lives that day. Hundreds of East High School students and educators joined the cadets outside the entrance of the school for a moment of observance.

 

“I feel proud that I can be a part of this tradition and honor my country,” said Frankie Trader, JROTC Brigade Commander and East High School senior. “I don’t remember Sept. 11. I was only 6 months old at the time, but I’ve been learning about it since I was a kid, and I’m just astounded by the tragedy and utter loss of life. It’s so important to remember those people and remember their lives.”

“It’s important to me as an American, a citizen and as the future to remember Sept. 11,” added Levi Ortega, JROTC Battalion Commander and fellow East High School senior. “We learn a lot from family members on days like this. You can look around and see on people’s faces how it has affected America. That’s why it’s so important for us to remember the fallen.”

 

Denver Public Schools offers the JROTC program to high school students. The program teaches character education, student achievement, health and wellness, leadership and diversity. In addition to promoting citizenship, JROTC also prepares students for options after high school including college or the workforce. Through cadet-run programs and team competitions, students learn invaluable professional skills like leadership, teamwork, time-management, self-discipline and communication.

Emergency Texts

The Denver Public Schools will send texts to families and high school students as a communication method, in addition to robo-calls and e-mails in response to emergency situations.  Messages will be sent in relation to crisis such as lockdowns, evacuations, weather delays/closures and lockouts during arrival/dismissal.

 

Families will be opted-in to receive emergency texts based on cell phone numbers provided during registration and by updating information in Parent Portal.  Messages will be sent in English and Spanish.  Please, complete this Google form  to sign up your student to receive emergency texts.
