200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner


On Thursday September 11 there will be a school-wide assembly in recognition of Patriot Day and the 200th anniversary of the lyrics of our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner. Francis Scott Key wrote his memorable poem after watching a battle during the War of 1812. Briefly held prisoner aboard a British ship in September 1814, Key was inspired by the sight of the American flag flying over Fort McHenry in Baltimore.

Swanton students will carry new classroom flags to the assembly and hold red and blue ribbons outlining the actual size of the Fort McHenry flag, 30 feet by 42 feet. Students in grades 3-6 will sing the national anthem while students in grades K-2 listen respectfully.
