FES Honors Our Veterans

Veterans Day, which lands on Saturday this year, is set aside to give consideration to military service in our country. Many Americans take a moment to appreciate and honor the service and sacrifice of all who have served in the U.S. military, including the students and staff at Ferndale Elementary. We owe them more than we can repay.


Throughout American history, about 45 million have served in our armed forces during times of war, along with additional millions who served in peacetime. Here in Ferndale, many of our Veterans came to FES for a celebration. They were invited to have lunch with our middle school, join students in their classroom for informative discussions and activities, and to an assembly. They received two songs in appreciation-thanks to Miss McWhorter and Mr. Duggan and their wonderful students. They were also introduced to the audience by class representatives. Finally, the entire school exited the gym-shaking their hands and thanking them in person. We were truly the lucky ones having them on our campus for the afternoon to show our appreciation.
