A sea of red, white and blue blanketed the district as the schools marked Veterans Day with special events and in-school assembly programs.

During their program, Academy Street Elementary School focused on the meaning behind the national holiday and several important facts surrounding the day. Students learned about the mission of the Honor Flight, an organization that transports veterans to the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., and several students spoke about the holiday’s history and each branch of the military.

Additionally, the school presented Concerned Living, an organization that has built apartments to house homeless veterans, with hundreds of household items the school collected during a building supply drive.
