Celebrating Our Veterans

Posted on: November 12, 2015

Students and staff at Hamilton-Maineville Primary School took a moment to thank all of our veterans at a special outdoor ceremony on Veterans Day.

Members of the Army Division 558, Maineville Reserve Branch, were invited to participate, along with any family members who have served in the armed forces. Private 1st Class Fitzgerald led the Pledge of Allegiance and also explained to students how to properly fold the American flag as Specialist Smith and Specialist Acus demonstrated. Students also sang “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee.”

 

The event culminated a weeklong celebration of veterans, where students wrote about family members who had served. Kindergarten classes created an enormous American flag with the stripes made up of biographies of veterans in their families.
