GRAND BLANC — On Sept. 17, students at Indian Hill Elementary gathered for a school-wide assembly to celebrate the 220th birthday of the Constitution of the United States of America.

Led by Principal Sarah Stone — who was decked out in a George Washington costume — the students opened the assembly with the national anthem, led by music teacher Sue MacKenzie. Kathy Zeilinger’s second-grade class then led the school in Hail the Constitution.

The third, fourth and fifth graders followed that performance with a song version of the Preamble, We the People. Throughout the assembly, Stone explained the Constitution and how the document stands for the nation’s mission statement.


The assembly concluded with one representative from each class signing the Constitution as the Founding Fathers once did, while the rest of the students added their “John Hancocks” throughout the day.
