ORLEANS — Threshold Academy celebrated Veterans Day on Nov. 11 to show its love and support to our Veterans.
In attendance were veterans from the Belding VFW Post No. 4406, Sheridan VFW Post No. 5065 along with many family members of Threshold Academy pupils.
The Belding and Sheridan VFWs started the assembly with the posting of the flags. All grade levels contributed to the assembly. The first graders led the crowd in the pledge of allegiance while the second graders sang the Star-Spangled Banner. Fifth graders shared several patriotic poems. The gym was decorated in red, white and blue and students. Veterans felt the support throughout the gym for our country and service men. It was a chance for the students to understand and learn about the importance of Veterans Day.
“It is important that students honor Veterans Day and that it doesn’t become just another day on the calendar,” Principal Victoria Simon said. “Many of our students have veterans and service men and women in their family. Some of our fourth and fifth graders say they plan to join the military.”
