Williams Elementary Remembers Sept. 11 with Stories of Community and Helping Others

Sunday marked the 10-year anniversary of September 11, 2001.  As we reflect on a day of one of the worst tragedies in our nation’s history, we are called to remember the overwhelming support and coming together of communities across the entire country. Heroes all over the United States joined hands to support relief, rescue and recovery efforts for those affected by the events that unfolded that morning.

In the spirit of coming together as one community, Katy ISD’s James Williams Elementary asked students to write stories about a time when they’ve been a helper in the community.  Every child who brought a story to school received an American Flag to place on the campus grounds.

Hundreds of flags graced the Williams Elementary grounds over the weekend, in commemoration of all people who helped others on Sept. 11, 2001, and in the days that followed.

Williams Elementary opened in 2000 and was named in honored of Dr. James Williams, who served the Katy ISD Board of Trustees. Currently, Williams Elementary serves more than 750 students in grades K-5.
