In recognition of Veterans Day, Hampton Bays Elementary School third graders in Claire Urizzo’s class created a Hallway of Heroes to honor those who made the greatest sacrifices.
The Hallway of Heroes is set up in the third grade wing of the school and features stars that honor veterans, active military members and first responders. On each star, students included a photo of their honoree and explained why they are a hero. Some teachers shared their heroes, as well.
“This combined effort is a great way to show all of the selfless heroes in our community and in our lives,” said Urizzo. “It also allowed our students the opportunity to show our gratitude for the sacrifices these heroes make to protect us and our freedoms every time they step into the hallway.”
