There will be on school on Monday (July 5th) in observance of Independence Day. On July 4th, 1776, America claimed its independence from Britain and created the Declaration of Independence. The document, primarily written by Thomas Jefferson, served as a formal announcement that the 13 American colonies were no longer part of the British Empire and would henceforth be free and independent states. Regarded as the birthday of the United States of America, the day is typically celebrated with parades, fireworks, ceremonies, barbeques, and family gatherings. We hope everyone has a great Independence Day!
