The Elementary School’s select choir paid tribute to those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001 by giving a moving performance during the Port Jefferson Fire Department’s annual 9/11 memorial service.

The fifth-graders, led by music teacher Jessica Pastor, performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless the USA” during the somber ceremony.

The event was attended by members of the community, the Port Jefferson School District’s administration and Board of Education, and Sen. Kenneth LaValle.

The district commends students Alexa Ayotte, Regan Byrne, Samantha DiCarlo, Maggie Johnston, Olivia Schlegel and Sophia Wennerod for their musical tribute.
