On Friday, November 8, the Veteran's Day ceremony was held to thank those who have served or are serving our country. The fourth-grade students were able to bring in friends and family members that have served, and the other students were able to submit photos of their loved one for a slideshow that was shown. The Clark Middle School Band and Choir worked together and performed the March of the Armed Forces as the photos were shown.
The corporation resource officer, Corporal Jerry Patrick, was the main speaker for the ceremony. He spoke about the time he spent in the Marines and how important it is to recognize veterans year-round and not just on Veteran's Day. He also explained how he sees the drive and dedication in the students that may serve one day.
A few students were able to speak about the history behind the holiday, and the fourth graders got to sing to thank the veterans. The entire school came together and celebrated the people who have risked their lives for the United States of America. The band and choir sang "God Bless the U.S.A." while everyone united and sang along.
