Tuesday morning, 5th and 6th grade students at Grandview Elementary honored veterans and those who have fallen. Veterans day is celebrated on Sunday, Nov. 11. 

This year marks 100 years since World War I was ended with the signing of an armistice on Nov. 11, 1918.

The Veterans Day program started with the Connersville Honor Guard presentation of the colors, Pledge of Allegiance and the Star-Spangled Banner.

A few students read about the American flag and symbols of our country. Music Director Sydney Holland led the 5th and 6th graders in several songs.

Students sang, “This Land is Your Land,” “The 50 States in Rhyme Awaits,” “50 Nifty United States,” and “Armed Forces Melody.” The program ended with Honor Guard playing taps to honor those who have fallen for their country.

Each Fayette County elementary school will host a Veterans Day program this week. They include Everton, 1:15 p.m. today; Maplewood, 1:15 p.m. Thursday; Fayette Central, 9:30 a.m. Friday; Frazee: 1:15 p.m. Friday; Connersville Middle School, 2:45 p.m. Friday.
