For 17 years, the first grade students of South Park Elementary Center have welcomed veterans into their classrooms to thank them for their service to our country. What started as a small program recognizing a few veterans has turned into a special morning recognizing dozens of veterans.


The first graders begin the morning by saying the Pledge of Allegiance and singing The Star-Spangled Banner. The first graders then welcome the veterans into their classrooms where they perform patriotic songs for them and ask them questions about their service to our country. The students also present the veterans with special cards thanking them for their service.


This annual program teaches South Park’s youngest students very important lessons about patriotism and service.
