A constitution is posted inside and outside Linda Cleverley's fourth-grade classroom at Keppel Elementary School, but this 2010 version one-ups Thomas Jefferson, students said.
As a class, students wrote a declaration of their own for their domain — Room 1305.
"We the students of Mrs. Cleverley's class, in order to form a more perfect classroom, establish friendship, ensure respect, promote fairness, promote equity and secure a good education for ourselves, do ordain and establish this constitution for the class of 1305."
It became fitting then that the same students read from the U.S. Constitution during the Constitution Day assembly Friday.
"I was nervous, but it was fun when I did it," said 9-year-old Chayne Andrews.
Her classmate, Madeleine Ackley, said the assembly was about celebrating freedom.
"It's saying what you think and telling what you believe even if someone doesn't agree," she said.
But the Constitution also protects freedom, which is a critical part of America, the fourth-graders said.
