Great Neck Road Elementary School invited local veterans into the school for a breakfast, giving students a chance to show their appreciation for their service on Nov. 8.

Joined by central administrators and Copiague School District Board of Education members, the ceremony kicked off with a welcome by members of the sign language club. Breakfast was served by the members of the student council and each veterans placemat was decorated with messages of thanks by the students. The veterans even had a chance to stop by the “Wall of Honor” photo booth and take home a photo to remember the day.

After showing a video done by the students, the chorus, under the direction of Andre Hosza, performed patriotic medleys for the guest to enjoy. Select students took to the podium to read their Veterans Day’s poems. To close the ceremony, the kindergartners marched in to “Grand Ole Flag” waving their flags.
