Students, staff honor nation’s heroes

Garland ISD recently commemorated the brave actions and sacrifices of our nation’s heroes. Students and staff celebrated Veterans Day 2017 with educational activities, special guests and dedicatory performances.

For the third-consecutive year, Club Hill Elementary School partnered with Spectrum Communications and the History Channel to host Thank a Veteran. The spirited event featured Club Hill’s fifth-grade choir, the Classical Center at Brandenburg Middle School’s choir, words from local veterans, a hallway parade and a post-ceremony reception.

Other campuses flaunted patriotic décor, served breakfast and wrote letters to troops to show appreciation and support. And, district departments joined forces to recognize veterans who are also part of the GISD family.
