Veterans Day Appreciation Assembly
St. Luke School students honor Veterans at the all school assembly Thursday November 9, 2017. Scouts, St. Luke Band, and students gathered to honor Veterans in the auditorium. Troop 319 presented the colors with pride. 8th grade students lead the assembly and St. Luke Alum and Veteran, Chris Boyle, sent a heart felt audio message. 2nd grade students from Ms. Long's class prepared a display showing love and honor for the very special Veterans that attended the event. Each 2nd grade student shared a phrase of appreciation representing the letter they held spelling out "WE LOVE VETERANS". Ms. Joan Dirska, Music Director at St. Luke School, led the student body in song in honor of Veterans Day. To hear the students, teachers and attendees singing together, "America the Beautiful", "God Bless America" and "My Country 'Tis of Thee", was emotional for many! As always, the high point of the assembly was when Veterans were invited to stand for the song from their branch of service! We wish all Veterans a very heartfelt thank you for your service and protection of the values we treasure as citizens of this great country.
