TAZEWELL (WVVA) - For many, President's day means a day off of work or school, but for some area students, it was a chance to learn the importance of patriotism.

WVVA caught several North Tazewell Elementary School kindergartners red-handed, or red-fingered rather as they learned the importance of honesty thanks to a few famous stories about America's forefathers.

Joshua Kinder and his classmates hands were covered in red finger paint as they created cherry trees, depicting the story of George Washington as a young boy.

"On President's day George Washington cut down a cherry tree and said to his father, I cannot tell a lie," Kinder recited.

Kindergarten teacher Daphne Murray says patriotism is an important part of her lesson plan on President's Day.

"In Kindergarten we teach them that it is more important to be respectful than anything. We like to teach them with the pledge of allegiance and the singing of the national anthem every morning, and having their hand over their heart and what that means," Murray said.

"We also want to teach them what it means to be President and why that position is important."

When asking two kindergarten students why the President of the United States is so important, they answered, " Because he takes care of us."

All kindergarten students created their own unique art project which was related to Presidents Day, including Abraham Lincoln hats and their own models of past presidents.

All projects are proudly displayed throughout the hallways of the school.
