On the morning of Nov. 10, Peebles Elementary School held a Veterans Day ceremony to honor the men and women who have served our country. All students and staff worked hard to prepare for the ceremony.
Cub Scouts Pack 266 presented the flags and began the program with the Pledge of Allegiance. Throughout the ceremony, students from each grade level participated in singing patriotic songs to honor the veterans.
The guest speaker was Lisa Scott. The students actively listened as she discussed her experiences during the time she served in the Navy. Sixth grade student Darby Mills read the touching book “America’s White Table” to all in attendance. The book explains how white tables are used to symbolize and commemorate service members fallen, missing, or held captive in the line of duty.
Several local veterans/active military attended and were recognized at the ceremony. After the ceremony, the annual Veterans Day parade took place. All of the students lined the hallways to thank and present artwork to the veterans in attendance. The students were grateful to honor these individuals and Peebles Elementary is proud to thank all of the veterans who have served our country.
