Allen W. Roberts Elementary School in New Providence, NJ, marked the 18th anniversary of September 11th, 2001, by honoring the people who lost their lives and the many who did what they could to help. 

At the start of the day, members of the fourth grade Webelos den of Cub Scout Pack 363 performed a flag ceremony in front of the school with several local firefighters, first aid squad members, police officers, veterans, staff and students in attendance. Over twenty community members participated in this remembrance.  New Providence School District promotes Character Education, and all Allen W. Roberts students were encouraged to do a kind deed or provide a helping hand throughout the day to honor the courage of the first responders eighteen years ago.
