Constitution Day- September 17th:


Did you know that September 17th is Constitution Day? Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.

I visited Thomas Jefferson’s home this weekend. I thought that the students would like to see his home and tombstone. Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence … nice connection with Constitution Day being observed tomorrow, September 17th.

Be sure to ask your child what they learned on Constitution Day!
