The 4th grade students at FES presented their annual Veterans Day Program on November 10, 2017. The students worked very hard preparing for this event and we thank them as well as their teachers and all of our special guests.
In order to present this program, students first spent time learning about the individual branches of the military. Their studies allowed them to recite facts about each branch of service for our guests. Each classroom then sang the Service Songs and Hymns of all of the branches!
Near the end of the program, veterans in attendance were recognized and short bios were read for all to hear. 44 veterans were acknowledged with certificates and pins. In addition, 28 fellow veterans were recognized but unable to attend. Lastly, we extend our sincere appreciation to the families of the 34 deceased veterans that were remembered.
Our thanks extend to :
- Our FES PTG group who provided refreshments and purchased the veteran gifts.
- Our 4th grade teachers: Mrs. Eibel, Mrs. Scalli, Ms. Bennett, Ms. Kerestury, Ms. Thoms, and Mrs. Woods for all of the hard work that went into teaching our students. Also, thank you to Mrs. Choe, FES Principal, for being the emcee of the program.
- Carter Eibel for playing Taps.
- All of the men and women who are serving or have served our country.
