Fifth graders from Susan E. Wiley Elementary School in the Copiague School District showed their appreciation for veterans by honoring them in a Veterans Day ceremony held at the school on Nov. 13.
The fifth graders paraded into the gymnasium waving their flags. Holding up signage that spelled the word veteran, the students read an acrostic poem that honored their heroes. The band ensemble – including a solo trumpet performance of “Taps” – featured songs that paid tribute to veterans.
