Avon Children Honor America as Sept. 11 Nears
Students place flags on school lawns
Younger students in Avon Local Schools weren't even born on Sept. 11, 2001.
But that doesn't stop them from commemorating the day and honoring their country.
Several schools in town celebrated Patriot's Day on Friday. Students wore red, white and blue clothes and helped create flag displays outside their school.
At Avon East, students came out two or three classrooms at a time to plant small American flags on the front lawn. Several passing motorists gave a honk of approval, which thrilled the kids.

Teacher Peggy Masin said that it was important for children to learn about patriotism. Her son, Barry, is a lieutenant in the Marines.
