Butler Elementary Welcomes Veterans


Simon Butler Elementary's annual Veterans Day celebration fell a week after Veterans Day and served as a meaningful and rousing last assembly before Thanksgiving break.

Veterans were welcomed to a star-studded breakfast in the library, and then escorted to the assembly, where they were greeted by Butler students waving American flags. The school and honored guests were treated to a viewing of President Obama's Veterans Day message, student-performed patriotic musical interludes, student and teacher presentations, and a talk on the history of Veterans Day by US Army Lieutenant Colonel Robert Kurtz.
