WEST GLADES SCHOOL HONORS ALL OF OUR VETERANS WITH A WONDERFUL CEREMONY THIS MORNING.  TO START OFF THE MORNING, OUR AMAZING BAND PLAYED A BEAUTIFUL RENDITION OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.  THEY DID A FANTASTIC JOB! 

FOLLOWING THIS, OUR KINDERGARTNERS WORKED VERY HARD ON RECITING THIS POEM:

Veterans Day

Veterans are brave men and women Who are still alive today.

We thank them for their service, and the price they chose to pay.

Each day we live in freedom and our memory must not fade.

The reason for this freedom comes from sacrifices made.

So we celebrate our veterans on the eleventh of November.

We thank them for their courage and pledge always to remember.

AND THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE MORNING, THE 8TH GRADERS RESEARCHED AND FOUND FORMER WEST GLADES STUDENTS WHO ARE NOW SERVING IN THE ARMED FORCES.  THEY INVITED THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS TO ATTEND OUR CEREMONY AND GAVE EACH FAMILY MEMBER A GIFT.  WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR FORMER STUDENTS WHO SERVE OUR COUNTRY AND THANK THEM FOR THEIR SERVICE.
