The Veterans in the crowd introduced themselves and said what branch they were active in and where they had fought. The event concluded with TAPS, played by Mrs. Katheryn Sauer, and 7-12 Principal, Mr. Kjar, giving a heartfelt speech thanking the students for their contributions, Mrs. Barbara Ellis for her hard work creating and planning the assembly, and, of course, our attending Veterans for their service. 1 2 4 5 7 8 9 10 12 Veteran’s Day Assembly After the program, Veterans were served lunch by the fifth and sixth graders, and encouraged to eat and share stories with the students.
