Poplar Springs Elementary Honors Veterans

Poplar Springs Elementary School held its annual Veterans Day program Tuesday, November 8, 2011. Prior to the program, students, teachers, and faculty were able to purchase flags in honor of veterans or active military. The flags also featured yellow ribbons tied to them with the name of the person the flag was honoring and their branch of service. During the program, fifth grade students sang patriotic songs and Principal LaVonda Germany explained the history and significance of Veterans Day to the students. The students then placed their flags in the boulevard to honor these men and women.

First grader, Gracie Weatherford, gets help placing her flag in the ground from her dad, Miss. Air National Guard Master Sargent Daniel Weatherford.
