Many of our schools honored our veterans with music in special assemblies this past week. At Garfield Middle School, the orchestra provided pre-program music followed by playing the National Anthem. Garfield choir students sang “America, the Beautiful” as 2 paratroopers jumped from a plane displaying large American flags as they floated to the ground.
Bridgeport, Crawford Woods, Fairwood, Highland, Linden, and Ridgeway Elementary Schools invited veterans, friends, and families to their musical tribute to the veterans and active military. These programs featured choral singing, solos, student essays, and visual pageantry. Hamilton High’s NJROTC also participated in many of these events by presenting the colors to begin the program.
