Vernfield > Vernfield Honors Veterans

Vernfield Elementary students, faculty, and staff hosted 73 special guests for a Veterans Day program on the morning of Friday, November 11. Upon their arrival the veterans were treated to refreshments provided by the Home and School Association. The guests were then honored during an assembly in which each grade-level took a turn making a presentation. Students showed their appreciation through poems, letters, song, and a play. Musical performances were interspersed throughout the program as well. Songs included The Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, My Country Tis of Thee, and You’re a Grand Old Flag. A particularly moving slideshow showcased those veterans in attendance during their time of service. Also taking place during the assembly was the donation of six new books to the school library. The books were the gift of a local veteran organization.

Guests were invited to attend the program by Vernfield students. Each student received a printed invitation which they were able to present to a special person in their life who is also a veteran. Many of the veterans in attendance expressed their appreciation for the event during a brief social following the assembly.
