My Hero: Call to Action
Saddle River Day School Honors Jeremy Glick
Each fourth grade student wrote an essay about their hero this fall that was published on the My Hero website. Our class decided to honor Jeremy Glick, who was a passenger on flight 93 on September 11th, in our Call to Action project this spring. Jeremy was the father of one of our students, Emmy, and an alum of Saddle River Day School. His sister Jennifer started Jeremy's Heroes after September 11th to honor her brother. Our class and a Harlem after school program run by Jeremy's Heroes worked together in a parallel project to raise money for the Red Cross disaster relief in Japan. We have also filmed our efforts and are in the process of editing our video. Our film will be added soon.
