Fifth-graders at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School held an assembly to honor and recognize local veterans on Nov. 7 in the cafeteria.

Parading in and waving their American flags, the students welcomed three Navy veterans – Leonard Oglesby, Kevin Nolan and Yohanny Hidalgo – to the school, who spoke about their experiences serving in the military and shared their personal stories. The fifth-graders created an acrostic poem, “Honor a Hero,” and student-musicians performed a patriotic tribute to heroes. 

Principal Cynthia Florio and Assistant Principal Janine Proulx presented the three veterans with certificates and participated in a question-and-answer sessions with the honorees.
