La Jolla Elementary students salute the new year

For the past 10 years — ever since 9/11 — La Jolla Elementary School students have gathered each Friday for to say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing a patriotic song together. Each week a different class leads the song.

On Sept. 9, the first Friday pledge was canceled when school was out because of the blackout. So on Sept. 16, they did it for the first time this year and included a moment of silence after Principal Donna Tripi said a few words about those who lost their lives and those who responded during the tragedy. The fifth graders let the song, “I’m Proud to be an American.”
