Observance of “Maine Week of Heroes”
INFORMATIONAL LETTER: 9
TO: Superintendents of Schools, Curriculum Leaders and School Principals
This letter serves as a reminder that this year, Maine Week of Heroes should be observed from Sunday, September 7 through Saturday, September 13, 2008. This is a time for us all to recognize the heroic Mainers that live and work in our communities and abroad.
Recognition of heroism, and especially a recognition of the heroic acts of Mainers, is a wonderful way for students to begin the school year. It emphasizes the importance of active citizenship and lets us think of how we as individuals may contribute even in small ways to our fellow citizens, our communities, our State, and our Nation.
Below you will find the State statute, 1 MRSA §146 Maine Week of Heroes for your reference. It is a local decision as to how you choose to participate in this important Maine observance.
§146. Maine Week of Heroes
