Students enjoyed breakfast with their veteran family members, and then the second-grade class sang a selection of songs.
Under the direction of music teachers Spencer Kibler and Katia Schmitt, over 200 second-graders performed songs honoring attendees. During the song, “Salute to the Armed Forces,” veterans were asked to stand during their respective service branch’s song.
