Not all things that students say are funny - some are deep and moving. For Veterans' Day this year, our school held an assembly honoring Veterans. We had over 70 Veterans with ties to students come to be recognized during the assembly. Before beginning, we stood as a group as the 6th grade band played the Star Spangled Banner while we sang along. One teacher, as the song was being played, noticed one of her students crying. "Are you okay?" she whispered to him as the song continued. He nodded, "I'm fine. I'm just really happy to be here right now."
Thank you to all who are serving or have served for our country. We truly appreciate you!
