Cockrell Elementary held their Patriotic Parade and Assembly on 9/11. For two hours parents and students enjoyed the celebration of the U.S. Armed Forces. A slideshow tribute was presented, which included student and staff family members who have served or are currently serving in the military. Each grade level performed a patriotic song that they had prepared. This years donation drive was "Socks for Soldiers." All of the donated socks were received by Soldiers Angels (soldiersangels.org). A highlight this year, was a voal performance by Samantha Wlodawsky, who sang Lee Greenwoods, "Proud to be an American."
