Highlands Elementary Honors Veterans and Grandparents
Shawnee Mission School District

In an assembly celebrating Highlands Elementary Community Veterans and their grandparents, the Boy Scouts opened with the presentation of the colors and led students and guests in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The sixth grade choir, directed by music teacher Mrs. Lunetta, sang several songs, including “The National Anthem” and “America the Beautiful”.  American history snippets were shared by students throughout the assembly, as each student thanked the Veterans for their service.

Retired Army Captain, and Highlands Elementary father, Mr. Jeremy Goff, was the guest speaker.

The assembly ended with a receiving line of all the veterans being given high-fives, fist bumps and words of thanks from Highland students.
