Hillsborough Grady Brown Elementary School is honoring local veterans on Tuesday, November 12th, at 1 p.m. This annual event is put on by the students and includes comments from the children and singing of patriotic songs. The event is followed by a reception.
Grady Brown Elementary School has a strong patriotic program that instills patriotism and civic pride in their students. The program announcement states, “An unknown author once wrote, “A veteran is someone, who at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America, for an amount of up to and including his/her life.” What a unique opportunity we have to teach our children about this level of commitment and honor.”
The school is also the home of the 2013 Teacher of the Year (K-5) for the Department of North Carolina. Small wonder! Let’s give the students our full support.
The school asks veterans to wear their hats, bring their medals, and maybe even wear their uniform (if it still fits!). Attendees should arrive by 12:45 for seating before the program begins.
Grady Brown is located at 1100 New Grady Brown School Road, Hillsborough, NC 27278.
