Read the Constitution! Event – Friday, September 17th, 2021
This Friday, American Prep will live stream the reading of our nation’s Constitution from each of our six campuses throughout the school day.
To commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the United States Constitution, Congress designated September 17th of each year as Constitution Day, requiring that “each educational institution that receives Federal Funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution.” For American Prep, this is an important event for our students and community.
Carolyn Sharette, Executive Director, said, “We invite all members of our community to join our live stream here and Read the Constitution! with us. It will be a great day to read and reflect on the foundations of our nation.”
Each of the following American Prep campuses will be live for one hour during the schedule listed below.
● 8 am – Draper 3 – 7th – 12th grades
● 9 am – Salem – Kindergarten – 9th grades
● 10 am – Draper 2 – Kindergarten – 6th grades
● 11 am – West Valley 1 – Kindergarten – 6th grades
● 12 pm – Draper 1 – Kindergarten – 6th grades
● 1 pm – West Valley 2 – Kindergarten – 12th grades
We invite all families to read the Constitution together this week and discuss the noble principles upon which our nation’s laws are based. We believe that by becoming more knowledgeable about our country’s laws, we can respectfully debate and participate in advancing the noble cause of freedom, prosperity, and peace.
