Riverton School's Veterans Day Ceremony
Thank you to Mrs. Parker for organizing and running our Riverton School's Veterans Day Ceremony. Thank you to our guest speaker, Chief Master Sergeant Nicole Sheleva. She shared her story with our school and answered specific questions from our middle school students. Our Riverton chorus added to the festivities singing several songs. One powerful part of the ceremony is when our chorus sang Songs of the Soldiers and each veteran in the audience stood up and participated with their branch song! Thank you to all of our veterans for your service. It was a wonderful community event.
