PEMBROKE PATRIOT PROGRAM
ANNUAL PEMBROKE PATRIOT PROGRAM
After two successful years, we are now establishing a tradition by kicking off our annual Pembroke Patriot Program! All elementary students are all invited to participate. This program encourages students to learn some of the vocabulary, geography, history, politics, and symbolism of our great nation. In addition, students will also “pay it forward” and give back to our amazing community.
The Pembroke Patriot Program is a comprehensive K-6 program that extends our students’ knowledge of patriotism in every grade level. This is an OPTIONAL program in which every student will have the opportunity to demonstrate his or her understanding of what it means to be a Patriot, have the ability to show respect for our country and to give back to others in the community through his or her actions. All Pembroke Patriots will receive a special gift to commemorate his or her completion of the program. While this is an optional program, we hope you encourage your child to participate. It is a meaningful way for us, as a school, to show our support for our country and our community. All Patriots will also be honored at an incredible assembly in May with many of their projects on display. We are looking forward to bringing our Patriot Program back every year so every student can proudly show their patriotism every year he or she is a Pembroke student.
For your student…
A list of patriotic activities is attached for your student’s grade level and can be completed in any order. The activities are completed (with or without our help) at home and then presented in school to parent volunteers. The presentation dates typically begin in January of each academic year. Teachers at each grade level may also have our Patriots share at Morning Meeting or other times of the day if students would like to present to their homerooms. Every grade level has different activities and only a certain number must be completed for a student to earn the award of Pembroke Patriot. Students may start this program without the pressure of completing all requirements.
Thank you and we can’t wait to view and display the patriotism of our students! To participate in the annual Pembroke Patriot Progam, please print and submit the form below to your school's main office.
