All three elementary schools held very special Veterans’ Day celebrations.
Jamesville Elementary School students invited 31 veterans for a performance by the second-grade students. Music teacher Laurie Russell also wrote a song thanking the veterans for their service and sacrifice, which whole school sang for the standing veterans – many of whom were brought to tears. It was a touching moment that the students, staff and community will remember for a long time.
At Moses DeWitt Elementary School, families of Moses DeWitt elementary students who are veterans or active-duty military were invited to the school’s third annual Veteran’s Day Assembly. During the honoring ceremony, the guests were invited to go on stage and were introduced individually by their child or relative. The assembly hall was decorated in red, white and blue, and students sang patriotic songs and presented poems.
