Thanks for writing here. So, wow, you are trying to arrange something school-wide? That is pretty impressive. Based on the past, some of the school's I have worked at have tried:
~ inviting military members of the community to come in and students recited songs, read letters, etc. They visited the rooms to read to the class.
~ Pin Wheels for Peace was another large project one of my schools completed to remember 9/11. You can Google that one.
~ Here is a long list of things under Education World: http://www.education-world.com/a_lesson/lesson244.shtml
~ Also, Scholastic has a unit plan posted for the upper grades: History in the Making http://www2.scholastic.com/browse/unitplan.jsp?id=278
Hope that helps, and I hope you had a great weekend!
