The 8th Grade heard first-hand about the events of 911 (Sept. 11, 2001) from first responder, Keith Murphy, parent of Gretchen Murphy. Mr. Murphy was a firefighter with Engine Company No. 47 on that fateful day. Along with his riveting account, he shared photos, maps, and his uniform and helmet with the 8th graders and some parents in attendance. The class is extremely grateful for Mr. Murphy’s bravery and courage and for sharing his experiences which provide a foundation for the 8th grade Modern U.S. History block scheduled for later this year.
