VETERAN'S DAY

November 11, 2016

On Friday, November 11th students and staff invited local veterans to a Veteran's Day breakfast and assembly.  About 45 guests attended the event that featured student performances and guest speaker Jim Rawlings, United States Air Force Veteran and currently employeed through the United States Army at Rock Island Arsenal.  Mr. Rawlings spoke on how serving in the military requires the six pillars of character that the elementary students are learning about.

Special thank you to the Boy Scouts, former Malden students, Zach and Reece Bohms and Beckett Conwell for starting our assembly by presenting the colors.  Kindergarten students led us in saying the Pledge of Allegiance followed by First - Fourth Grade singing the National Anthem.  Kaleb Cain and Kaden Baker gave speeches and the Junior High students sang America.

As a reinforcement for the character counts pillar of fairness, the kindergarteners learned to play Go Fish.
