On November 28, Mariposa Elementary had an assembly to honor men and women who have served and those who are currently serving in the United States Military.  Our students were encouraged to invite a family member or friend who is a Veteran or currently serving to attend this assembly.

During the program, a group of Veterans came to speak to the students. Mr. Chad Guess had his Mariposa Marching Band Drumline put on an amazing performance. Also, fifth grader Arbenz Jocelyn shared his essay about Veterans. Students truly enjoyed learning about patriotism and service and were extra excited when they found out that Amvets Post 15 donated a U.S flag to every student at Mariposa Elementary!

In February, the Veterans will be returning to Mariposa Elementary to present in individual classes. Students love to hear the Veterans’ life stories and the students have so much to learn from them.
