    Veterans Day
    Family   Bald Eagle  
    Last week, we had a lot of fun honoring veterans at the Veterans' Day Assembly!  We got to sing the military branch songs, see a bald eagle and see many veterans who have served our country!
    We learned about some of our national symbols, such as the bald eagle, the flag, the Liberty Bell and the Washington Monument.
