Veterans' Day

Every year, our school has a Veterans' Day program. I know I am a little biased, but I think ours is a pretty good one. Wednesday's was no different. The auditorium was nearly full. Some of Robby's FFA students presented the flags. The Kindergarten is in charge of leading the pledges. T.S.'s friend Aimee led the Pledge of Allegiance and then he led the pledge to the Texas flag.

The Kindergarten through second grade sang and the veterans in attendance were recognized. The third and fourth grade sang. Sadie was chosen to carry the Marine flag when the service hymns were sung.
The fifth and sixth grade band and junior high band performed. One high school student sang and another presented a poem. I'm thankful that our school and community take the time to recognize our veterans and take the time to instill patriotism in our young people.
