Veterans Day programs at all campuses

Thursday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day and programs honoring Rockdale area veterans will be held at all four RISD campuses on that date.

Times are different than in past years, especially at the elementary which had previously held its program in the afternoon.

This year the elementary (grades K-2) will begin the day with a 9 a.m. program in the school gym, according to Principal Robin Faulkner.

She said elementary choirs will sing a series of patriotic songs.

Next up is the annual high school program at 10:30 a.m. in the school auditorium, according to Principal Joey Geletka.

Veterans will be recognized and there will be a number of musical presentations and speeches.

Lunch will be provided to veterans and their spouses at 12-noon in the junior-high commons, according to Principal April Eschberger.

Veterans planning to attend are asked to call the junior high at 430-6100 prior to Nov. 11 so cafeteria personnel can gauge how many meals to prepare.

The big day concludes with a new Veterans Day program for Rockdale, at 1:30 p.m. in the intermediate (grades 3-5) school cafeteria.

Principal Pam Kaufmann said a musical program will be presented.

“Also, all of our students wrote ‘thank you’ notes to our veterans,” Kaufmann said.

Principals said all Rockdale-area veterans are invited to attend any or all of the Veterans Day activities.
