SMES honors our Veterans!

November (2017) Shades Mountain 2nd and 3rd graders have been working hard in their music classes since September to prepare for the Veterans' Day program which took place on Tuesday, November 7th. Second graders sang "In Service of Our Country".  Third graders performed "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" which included movement and drums. Both grades sang the medley of Armed Forces anthems and performed a version of "America the Beautiful" that had them singing in two part harmony! Many students had speaking parts and read their thoughts on why we celebrate Veterans' Day. Art classes made a banner to welcome and celebrate all the veterans that attended. We were glad to be joined by William Galyean, a local veteran who was on active duty in the US Marine Corps in the 1960's. We celebrated veterans from every branch who were present and were joined by many parents, family, and community members. All the veterans in attendance, as well as individuals who could not be present but were visible on the Shades Mountain slideshow, were celebrated.  Seeing pictures of our veterans reminds us of the  many servicemen and women we have to be thankful for on the "Mountain"!
