Our Lady of Lourdes Celebrates Veterans Day

[slideshow_deploy id=’67614′]

Some of the most important lessons do not come from a book or from reading and answering questions.

Rather, the most crucial lessons our children learn are those that create a bridge between generations.

Our Lady of Lourdes celebrated Veteran’s Day by inviting grandparents and Veterans to their annual Veteran’s Day program on Friday, November 14, 2014.

Fernando Castillo, 8th grade, introduced the program with a brief history of Veteran’s Day telling everyone, “It is imperative that we learn the history of Veteran’s Day so we can honor our service members properly.”

Students honored Veteran’s and entertained guests with several patriotic songs and poems such as Yankee Doodle, Grand Old Flag, and This Land is Your Land.

Preschool students were also able to recite two patriotic poems for the crowd.

The 7th and 8th grade reenacted a World War II radio broadcast and even included new clips such as Dwight D. Eisenhower’s final support message and Harry Truman’s announcement that the War had ended.

The school closed the program, being led by the 3rd and 4th grade, singing God Bless America.

Following the program, guests and students gathered around the school’s peace pole, which was dedicated last year, to read off the names of Veterans submitted by school families.

Students must value our veterans and learn from past generations.

One day it will be their generation’s turn to answer the call to serve, protect, and defend our great nation.

Our Lady of Lourdes dismissed at lunch to allow families, grandparents, and Veteran’s to spend the rest of the day together.
