Students Bring Community Together for Veterans Day
Honoring All Who Served with Songs, Facts, and Fun
Millions will take time across the country to come together tomorrow, to honor our service men and women with Veterans Day celebrations.
But some celebrations are already happening across part of the Northland.
Superior’s Cathedral School students proudly wore their red, white, and blue on Thursday.
The patriotic celebration included songs, historical facts, and even the school band.
Students from Kindergarten all the way through 8th grade performed in front of parents, grandparents, and most importantly, local veterans.
Teachers at the school say these students have been preparing for weeks.
“The kids look forward to it every year and they enjoy it. It’s something that they want to give back and invite the veterans to come and participate and observe everything,” said Jaime Samarziya, Cathedral Middle School Social Studies Teacher.
Cathedral students spend time studying our government, military branches, and what those jobs are all about.
“When they understand the value of what has been given to them prior to their time, it’s a huge piece of everyday life. Our veterans contributed to what we have in our freedoms today and we want to pay back, and this has been a good way of doing so,” said Samarziya.
The ceremony originally started years ago, by a now retired Cathedral social studies teacher.
