Washington students pulled out all the stops to welcome area Veterans to their school.
The morning began with a social gathering with refreshments for the Veterans with the Washington staff.
Then the students reported to the Cafeteria, where they had the opportunity to meet the Veterans before they recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang some patriotic songs. Veteran Sam Manganello, father of Second Grade Teacher Ms. Manganello, brought his bugle and played a few songs for the students.
Every classroom was assigned a Veteran, who read the story, Have You Filled A Bucket Today, and talked to the students about the importance of service, sacrifice and helping others.
It was a wonderful morning of sharing and thanking the Veterans for their service. Please click here

Thank you, Veterans, for your service and sacrifice, to keep us free and safe.
