Paden City Elementary School Honors Local Veterans with Luncheon

By Staff | Nov 13, 2019

Local Veterans enjoying lunch with Paden City Elementary students.

Paden City Elementary students and staff were honored by the presence of some of our local veterans. Veterans were invited to eat lunch with students on November 8th as a small thank you for their service. During lunch students presented cards and trophies they assembled themselves to show their appreciation to our Veterans. After lunch clean up, Veteran guests were invited back for a Veteran’s Day Assembly. Guests were welcomed by Mrs. Chambers, followed by kindergarten leading the pledge and a wonderful presentation by the choir. 1st grade then proceeded with a poem, followed by each grade level with a song or poem. Some of the students’ creations that were used as props during their performances were presented to visiting Veterans. Sixth grade students set up America’s White Table in silence after reading the story by Margo Theis Raven. The celebration ended with a closing thank you by Mrs. Underwood. It is always an honor to host this day.
