Patriotic displays and flags decorated Albert G. Prodell Middle School as part of the Veterans Day celebration. Student musical performances were led by Mrs. James Finnerty, Mr. John Samonte and Mr. Fred Volz; students participated in a gratitude project in their advisories, cards were delivered to visiting veterans to bring to the VFW post and the culminating event, an eighth grade assembly where guest veterans spoke to students about their experiences in the military, made this Veterans Day extra special.
The school honored Senior Master Sgt. Michael Wern, Air Force; Sgt. Pat Biglin, Air Force and Army; Lance Cpl. William Fitz, Marines and Lt. Dan Guida, Army, for their service.
“It takes a village to plan these incredible events, and the Prodell Middle School Veterans Day committee did an incredible job,” social studies teacher Danielle Senneca said. “The veterans were truly touched by all of the details.”
