Labor Day: Morgan Scott
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a holiday dedicated to American workers for their hard work and accomplishments. Many people celebrate this holiday in a wide variety of ways. Some go to the lake, travel out-of-town, go camping, or just relax at home with their families. Freshman Coraima Vargas said, “My plans are to have a BBQ with my family.” Our Family and Consumer Science teacher Leanne Cordell said, “My plans are to go on a hike and spend time with my friends in Athens!”
Labor Day was part of the start of the beginning of the labor movement. It has become a holiday that marks the end of summer and the beginning of the school year. The date was not specifically chosen, but instead was picked since it was in the middle of the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving.
The BDNN hopes that you enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Remember to stay safe and do not come to school on Monday, September 4th!
