Today, we held a Memorial Day assembly for the first time since 2019. We invited local Veterans to present the colors, and they did so with grace and refinement. The GBS band came across the parking lot and played the national anthem and taps. Local veteran, Bob Edwards, spoke to the children and described the history and importance of Memorial Day. This was a lovely and touching portion of our assembly. We hope you will take a moment this weekend to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Later on in the presentation, Mrs. Hill presented information about our Spirit Week which will be held the week of June 6th.
During the last part of today's assembly, I presented Eagle Certificates to students who have demonstrated one or more of our core values this week - respect, honesty, kindness, cooperation, and grit.
