On Thursday November 9th, Byron Middle School held their annual Veterans Day appreciation breakfast and assembly. Over ninety Veterans and family members enjoyed a breakfast put on by the student council. At 8:30, both Veterans and middle school staff and students went to the theater for a student organized and run assembly. For the next hour, the audience heard music from the band, choir, and poems written by 8th grade students. There was a presentation that included the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance and a video that contained interviews of Veterans, staff and students regarding the meaning the flag. The assembly wrapped up with a short presentation about each branch of military. Veterans from each branch then were able to introduce themselves and were given a small flag with an attached message from an 8th grade student. Special thanks to the students and staff who worked hard making the morning events successful. I want to thank all the Veterans and their family members that took the time to join us.
