An Edison School salute to Memorial Day in Bridgeport

May 24, 2019

BRIDGEPORT — Students at Edison School paid homage to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for the country by decorating the front long of their Boston Terrace School with American flags and signs.

“It’s small but we hope it will grow,” said Christopher Cormier, a third grade teacher at Edison. He and Rebecca Oakes, a retiring sixth grade teacher at the school, worked together on the project.

Cormier said the small K-6 school just recently started a scouting troop as well and that this Memorial Day project tied in nicely.

“It’s a great start,” said Dendra Altieri, interim principal at Edison who suggested the idea. She hopes the display will grow in future years.
