Bungay School Students Pay Homage to Veterans

SEYMOUR- On Wednesday, November 11, 2015, Bungay Elementary School celebrated Veterans Day and honored those who have served and are serving our country. 
 
Throughout the week students from all grades created posters to hang on our Wall of Honor – featured in the main hallway of our school.  Here, students were able to write about a Veteran that is special to them. 
 
Additionally, Bungay C.A.R.I.N.G. Student Council Members braved the rain and placed flags along the entry way of our school. During our Veteran’s Day assembly students were able to share some of these posters as well as trivia facts about Veteran’s Day and the fifth grade chorus sang “The Armed Forces Salute.” 
 
Kristen Graves, State Troubadour, enlightened students with her “Just Be Nice Party” which included traditional folk songs, while sharing stories.  The students were encouraged to sing along and some children were invited on stage to sing with her. Thank you again to all the Veterans who have served and are serving our country!
