Craig elementary school students thank veterans

CRAIG — Elementary schools across Craig have joined in their efforts to recognize and thank area veterans for their service.

Ceremonies began Thursday, Nov. 8, with a Veterans Day performance of patriotic songs by the music club at Ridgeview Elementary School.

On Monday, Nov. 12, Sunset Elementary School School students, faculty, and staff gathered for a special flag raising performed by members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 color guard. Veterans then led the school in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

The choir sang a number of songs including a salute to each branch of the military. Principal Jill Hafey, aided by Secretary Becky Fritz, on behalf of the school, gave a thank-you gift to each of the veterans.

Also on Monday, Sandrock Elementary School students, faculty, and staff gathered with members of the American Legion Post 62. Students sang patriotic songs, learned about the names, the branch of service and date of service given by each veteran.
