Classroom Spotlight: Pender High students discuss 9/11

Today, Mr. Tracy’s AP History class at Pender High School discussed Sept. 11 and watched “Boatlift,” a short documentary that tells the story of how hundreds of boats responded to Manhattan on that day, evacuating about 500,000 people — the largest sea evacuation in history.

Students then researched other ways Americans came together following the tragic events of 9/11 and taped them to a chalk outline of the Twin Towers.
