Richmond Pupils Honor Veterans at Luncheon
Richmond Consolidated School pupils prepare for the Pledge of Allegiance during the luncheon on Friday afternoon.
Other grades paid respect through poetry and song — the pre-K led the Pledge of Allegiance; the first grade breaking down each letter of the words "Happy Veterans Day" into praise and thanks; the second grade recited the poem "In Flanders Field" and the third grade sang "Thank You, Soldiers."
The seventh grade will work behind the scenes with the collected data and figure out distribution statistics, among other things.
"It's an important function, we've been doing this for four years now," said Sharon Renfrew, the curriculum specialist and sixth-grade world geography teacher. "They learn so much by having conversations with the veterans, and learn more about Veterans Day."
