Ray Marsh Elementary Honors Veterans

Ray Marsh Elementary Honors Veterans
Shawnee Mission School District

Ray Marsh joined numerous schools across the district that took time to honor those who have served.

Students and invited veterans joined an outdoor assembly on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2021. Boys and Girl Scouts opened the assembly, leading students and guests in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The sixth grade choir, directed by music teacher Cassie Nguyen, sang several songs including “The Star Spangled Banner.”

The ceremony continued as the Boy Scouts led the retiring of the school’s old American flag and led the raising of their new flag. Veterans who attended the ceremony introduced themselves. Each one shared which family member invited them to the school ceremony and in which branch of the military they had served.

The assembly ended with the Student Council members raising posters of ‘thanks’ for the guest veterans.
