Woodhull Elementary School students and staff took time to reflect and remember the events of 9/11 through age-appropriate activities.

With the school gathered together during a morning meeting, Superintendent of Schools Loretta Ferraro read Maira Kalman’s book “Fireboat: The Heroic Adventures of the John J. Harvey” aloud to the students in honor of Patriot Day. The book recounts the story of an old fireboat that came to aid New York City on one of its darkest days – Sept. 11, 2001 – and helped to battle the roaring flames at Ground Zero.
