The annual Veteran’s Day Program at Third Street Elementary was held today. Veterans & guests filled the gymnasium & balcony area. Second & Third graders showed off their singing talent with 3 songs & Mr. Dobbs read the names of those Veterans attending the program. Veteran Ken Schoolcraft spoke to the students about the importance of remembering Veteran’s Day. This year’s guest speaker was Christina Baurichter who is a Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Christina spoke to the students about the similarities of the Army code & our Tiger Way. She was joined at the podium by her second grade son Jebb . As always, the playing of Taps signified the end of our program. Veterans then made a circle around the gym as each student & staff member shook their hands & thanked them for their service.

This years Scholastic Book Fair theme – Sir Readalot’s Castle: Enter the Kingdom of Books! – surrounds students in the celebration of reading with hundreds of fun, engaging, affordable books for them to discover. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired sills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.
