Lincoln Elementary School Principal Tammy DeWolfe said she is moved to tears every time she thinks of that day 10 years ago.
"I remember arriving to work, and staff had the TV on in the library," DeWolfe
said, "which was unusual.
said word continued to spread throughout the building as the terrorist also attacked the Pentagon and sent another plane down in a Pennsylvania field.
"It was a very heavy-felt day," she
said teachers were hesitant to give out too much information to the students since most of the adults weren't sure what was happening.
"The worst thing we could do is give them wrong information," DeWolfe
As time went on, Lincoln Elementary began using their Discovery Program to help the students and staff deal with the aftermath of the Sept. 11 tragedy.
"We had staff do a Discovery Circle with the kids to talk a little bit about it and allow the kids to share their feelings and their comments on what they had seen on TV or discussed with their families," DeWolfe
said, "to ground them for the next couple of days, so we could try our best to go on with the importance of education."
