AST CELEBRATES OUR NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE
Throughout the month of September, AST is bustling with activities to celebrate our country’s independence. Earlier in the month, our STUCO celebrated Flag Day by having an honor squad march with the flag in front of all middle school and high school. The band was on hand to play the national anthem as the honor squad raised the flag up the post. STUCO invited a panel of prominent ladies who are known for their success in various local industries. They spoke to our students about how important an education is and that if they study abroad, how it is their civic duty to return to Honduras with their college degrees.
Elementary School had the Independence Day Assembly. They invited the cadets from the Francisco Morazán Military Academy. They marched in front of the entire elementary school and did a fantastic routine that amazed all the spectators. Various groups in elementary school had special presentations which had to do with our National Symbols.
Pre-School had their Independence Day Parade. They had cheerleaders, baton twirlers, students dressed as our national heroes, etc. The middle school band marched at the head of the parade.
