VETERANS DAY ASSEMBLY
Veterans Day was celebrated in school with an assembly on November 12th. The Memorial student council did a great job of running the assembly and the 4th grade sang a beautiful song! Also, a special thank you to Tommy and the veterans at VFW Post 133 for all of their support and to Ralph Vasquez for being this year's guest speaker.
The PTA contributed to the event by arranging some of the assembly activities with veterans from VFW Post 133 and providing a light breakfast for all of the honored guests.
It was a wonderful assembly! Always remember those who served to protect our great country!
