Cheltenham Elementary first grade students from Ms. Logan's class held a very special Veterans Day celebration on Friday, November 11th. After days of practice, Room 15 welcomed four local veterans to their classroom. The celebration opened with the class saying the Pledge of Allegiance in unison. Boys and girls then presented a special video tribute to their honored guests and recited their very own Veterans Day poem. They then sang "See the Veteran", "You can Count on Me", and "America of Thee."
The veterans who visited Room 15 interacted with the class, telling them what it means to be a veteran. Everyone was thrilled to be in the company of such heros. To mark their excitement, students completed a second version of their poem for their honored guests.
