On Thursday, November 11, 2021, Edison Middle School hosted an assembly to honor our local veterans. The assembly began with our veterans, staff, and students standing as our Boy and Girl Scouts carried in the American flag and the flags of our various branches of the armed forces. Our principal, Mr. Smith, gave the opening speech to greet the entire assembly. Mrs. Rosekelly, Edison Middle School music teacher, arranged for patriotic songs to be sung by the fourth grade classes. Andrea Deehr, Maverick Mesenburg, Ian McCord, Weston Gfell, and Mary Moon read their essays dedicated to our veterans. Joy Jordan, Jenna Koeghan and Navea Yamanouchi played taps to end our program. Following the program Edison Middle School Parents Club provided refreshments to our honored guests. We would like to acknowledge Mrs. Putnam's help, guidance counselor, for organizing this special event.
