Second grade students celebrated "Take A Veteran to School" on Friday, November 9th. Students invited a veteran in to visit the classroom with them. Many were parents and grandparents who have served in the military throughout many different situations and wars. One student's father is currently deployed to Afghanistan. Students learned what it means when they put their hands over their hearts in saluting the flag, and how the military men and women vow to protect them so that they can enjoy all that they can do in life. They also learned a march and cadence from the Air Force! They wrote a thank you star for the veterans and got their autographs as well.
