Throughout the Babylon School District, students and staff recognized Veterans Day by honoring those who have served the country.
The students in Ms. Scalfani’s third grade class at Babylon Grade School created cards for veterans that were delivered to a local veterans facility in Yaphank. Students wrote messages of thanks to the veterans for their service.
At Babylon Elementary School, classes also created cards and messages of thanks to veterans. The students learned about what it means to be a veteran and how their service is important to the freedoms in this country. In the building’s entrance, the school created a Hallway of Heroes with the names of veterans tied directly to the school community.
