Uncle Sam’s Comedy Jam recently stopped by the Martin F. Quinn Primary Center in the Pittston Area School District. The school’s Parent Teacher Organization brought the show to the school to celebrate Constitution Day. The Comedy Jam is an educational celebration of American freedom. The Bill of Rights and Constitution were there as part of the program, and so was the Statue of Liberty. Teachers and students enjoyed watching as Uncle Sam, with help from the Statue of Liberty and 16 volunteers, taught the fundamental beliefs that unite all Americans. During this special history lesson, kindergarten and first grade students learned how America became a free nation.
