Elementary schools stage Veterans Day ceremonies

Canadian and Baker Elementary schools staged their annual Veterans Day ceremonies on Wednesday.

At BES, veterans ate breakfast and then were presented with a program that included patriotic songs, readings about the history of the observance, and a slideshow with photos naming veterans who have a connection with BES students and staff.

At the conclusion of the program, CHS Wildcat Band trumpet player Trey McPherson performed Taps.

Later at noon, veterans enjoyed a lunch at CES. The musical program delivered by the students, who were decked out in blue CES T-shirts, featured patriotic songs and rounds, along with recorder music.
