Students across the nation are required to memorize the Statement of Rights from the Declaration of Independence to honor our Veterans during Celebrate Freedom Week. CRI Social Studies students were given the passage to memorize on Tuesday, October 29 (A classes) and Wednesday, October 30 (B classes). They are required to recite it in class on Friday, November 8 (A classes) and Monday November 11 (B classes). Students are allowed to recitie it early if they are able. Happy memorizing!
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men
are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
From the Declaration of Independence: In Congress, July 4,
