Both the Carrollton Grade School and High School will host Veteran’s Day Programs this year, though they won’t be exactly as in the past. The Veteran’s Program at the Grade School will begin at 8:30 a.m. followed by the High School at 10 a.m.
“Because of COVID protocols, we won’t be able to offer the Veteran’s Breakfast at the Grade School as we have in the past,” Carrollton Dean of Students Josh LeMond said. “But we are going to have some individually wrapped flag cookies we will be handing out to the veterans.”
The Veteran’s Breakfast was always a highlight in the school children’s year as they sat and had breakfast with their grandparents or parents, who were usually in uniform. Afterwards, they would file into the gym where a program honoring the veterans would be held with each veteran’s name being read along with his branch of service.
This year’s program is being led by Lemond, Grade School Principal Ronda Smith and the Social Studies classes.
At the high school, the program will be led by the Civics Club. Plans are to have a keynote speaker, which will be teacher, Mrs. Heck, who is a veteran. The high school band will play musical selections honoring the veterans and their branches of service and several quilts made by a local resident will be given to some veterans.
