Nearly 80 students participated in A National Call to Wave Flags.

At about 8:30 a.m., students and staff came together on the Dedham Athletic Field.

They held flags while singing the National Anthem, saying the Pledge of Allegiance, and observing a moment of silence for those lost.

“One of the mottos is never forget. As you know, these students weren’t around then, but we want to experience and remember what happened so we can continue to be a country that fights for the freedom of everyone,” said Tim Pearson, Physical Education Teacher at Dedham School.

Throughout the morning, students participated in other classroom activities to remember 9/11.
