Old Post Celebrates Veterans Day

Veterans Day

On Monday, November 11, 2019 Old Post Elementary School welcomed veterans to spend the morning with us. Many of our veterans are family members of our students which makes this day for our Wildcats even more special. Veterans enjoyed a welcoming reception prior to the all school assembly. During our assembly our Girl Scouts presented the flag, and our Principal, Mr. Mitchinson welcomed everyone with a brief history of how Veterans Day came about. Each military branch stood in recognition while the Old Post community cheered them on. Afterwards the Veterans and their families accompanied their student to their classroom to share stories about their time in the service. Old Post Elementary is so thankful for the sacrifice and service of all of the men and women who served for our country!
