St. James has a special celebration for Veterans Day. After our regular chapel, we participated in a recognition ceremony for special veterans we invited to the service. The second grade students recited a poem they learned to honor veterans during the chapel service this week. The students studied about the meaning of the poppy flower, and proudly wore one on their uniform. The second graders also wrote thank you letters to military members serving overseas. We talked a lot about what it means to be a veteran and the importance of this holiday.
