Honoring Heroes at Watauga Elementary School
As has become a tradition at Watauga Elementary School, third grade students performed a patriotic tribute to honor our nation’s heroes, our veterans. A packed audience gathered to hear patriotic songs and learn about the meaning of Old Glory, our flag. Students explained the meaning behind the colors and design of our United States Flag, and thanked the veterans for courageously defending the flag and the freedom it represents. When asked following the program about their favorite part of the program, many students said they most enjoyed seeing the veterans in uniform and listening and watching as the honor guard ceremonially posted the colors. For many, this was the first time they had actually seen this done. We wish to extend our gratitude to all veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made on our behalf.
