Veterans Day support

Dear editor

I want to thank everyone who helped with our combined Intermediate and Elementary Veteran’s Day program.

First, thanks to the numerous veterans who attended, and a heartfelt thanks to all veterans who have served our country.

Thanks to parents for their continued support of the students and our schools.

The hard work of the students on the letters they wrote and learning their songs was evident at the program. Thanks to KRXT for broadcasting some of the winning letters, and to The Reporter for publishing more of the winning letters.

Special thanks to Melinda Perez for playing “Taps” for us at the program’s conclusion.

Finally, thanks to the staff of both schools, the administration, teachers, instructional aides, custodians, bus drivers, maintenance and everyone else who helped make this program a success.

Rockdale is a great place to live with a huge heart. What a blessing it is to live in such an awesome community.

Thanks again,

Leslie Hasselbach
