Students of St. Michael the Archangel Regional School, Clayton, organized service projects for its Sept. 11 tribute.

There was a memorial created of all the names of the people who perished on 9/11. They were remembered in prayer along with all those families affected by the events of that day.

The youngest children created art projects that were hung in the “Hallway of Heroes” in the school. Students in grades 3-5 planted and will maintain the remembrance garden outside the main entrances to the school.

Representatives of local police and fire departments and an EMT brought their vehicles to the school and answered students’ questions.

The upper grades heard a presentation by James Smith, Gloucester County EMT, who was present at Ground Zero during the crisis.
