In efforts to spread patriotism, Kyrene de la Esperanza Elementary School held its sixth annual Kindergarten Patriotic Program on Friday afternoon, inside the school’s multipurpose room.

Six kindergarten classes participated in the Kindergarten Patriotic Program where they performed different songs in front of their families.

Families filled the school’s multipurpose room to see their child perform during the Kindergarten Patriotic Program, with some wiping tears from their eyes as their child performed.

Parent Chris Pantin said it felt good watching his son perform during the program, and was nice to see that each student preformed well.

“He was preparing for it all week and we heard the songs in the car all the time,” he said.

Some patriotic songs the students sang ranged from “Grand Ol’ Flag” and “God Bless America” to “This Land is Your Land.”

Along with performing different patriotic jingles, a selection of students also shared different informational facts about the origin of the American flag to the different presidents on each American coin.

Students were seen waving miniature U.S. flags as they sang each song, and sported custom patriotic shirts they made for the event.

Shirts were purchased by each family for $3, and each student was able to design it as they pleased.

Some designs consisted of the American flag, stars and stripes.

Kindergarten teacher Matalia Rojas said preparations for the Kindergarten Patriotic Program began early this year, which was in conjunction with the students learning about America in their social studies class.

She enjoyed seeing each of her students learn about the historic facts that took place in the U.S.

“When we came back from winter break we started learning about our country … we learned all about America and what it means to be patriotic,” she said. “We practiced on our own first then we got together with all the classes.”
