Students send encouragement to D.C.

Staff reports

Eliana Morris, a fifth-grade teacher at Tahoe Valley Elementary School, and her students were the inspiration behind rallying students to participate in making an encouragement flag for the survivors and heroes of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Classes had red or white small squares, one for each child, to write a word or short statement of encouragement from their heart. The squares were pasted along side each other to form the red and while strips on the American flag.

Morris will deliver the encouragement flag personally to Washington to be displayed at the memorial near the Pentagon. In addition, she will resent an encouragement card to American Airlines, where her sister is a flight attendant.
