Quite a memorable Veterans Day event

This past Veterans Day I was fortunate enough to attend the Veterans Day program at Winston Campus Junior High School in Palatine.

The program included the Presentation of Colors, Star Spangled Banner and Pledge of Allegiance. The attentive student body was also privileged to hear from two Marine Corps veterans, one who brought with him a great message about making the right choices in life. The other brought a retired bomb sniffing dog!

The program continued with outstanding performances from the 7th and 8th grade band and chorus, as well as a video tribute to our heroes that included a number of students sharing with the audience what Veterans Day meant to them.

After Taps was played, there was an orderly retreat to class while the band concluded with "American Heritage March."

Congratulations to Principal Carranza, teachers and staff for bringing this most important day of remembrance to life, and to the student body of Winston Campus Junior High, for their active participation, and respectful behavior.
