Constitution Day Commemorated by Northern Michigan School

Today is Constitution Day, which celebrates the signing of the US Constitution.

Roscommon Area Schools were amongst many Michigan schools to take part in Constitution Day activities.

While the national holiday celebrates the Constitution, schools like Roscommon Elementary School use this day as an educational opportunity to teach kids more about their country.

Using activities like singing and writing, students learned about the rules that make our nation what it is today.

“This is just an opportunity for us to talk to with our students and talk about what the constitution is and, in a young person’s mind, ‘Constitution’ being, ‘Okay, these are the set of rules that we kind of agreed to of how we are going to coexist with one another,'” said Kathy Rees, Roscommon Elementary School principal.

The United States Constitution was signed on this date in 1787.
