Sept. 11, 2008 to mark the 7th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11th, 2001. Students heard a poem commemorating the World Trade Center and heard speakers from the military and emergency services before placing tiny U.S. flags into giant numbers 9 and 11 which will be displayed at the school. The state police helicopter Trooper 1 did a flyover and the New London Firefighters Pipes and Drums played. &#40;AP Photo&#47;The Day, Sean D. Elliot&#41;</span></div>
