Naturalization event to be held at Denver school

DENVER (AP) – A Denver elementary school is hosting a naturalization ceremony for a class studying immigration.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials say 29 new citizens from 15 countries will be taking their oath of allegiance at the Dunn IB World School Friday morning. A class of fifth graders there asked immigration officials to hold the ceremony at their school because they’re studying the topic.

One student will be reading an essay on “What it means to be an American citizen” as part of a school contest.

The new citizens are from countries that include Brazil, China, Colombia, Germany, Mexico and Poland.
