Schools in South Huntington have been busy learning about and preparing for Veterans Day. Through the community service efforts of our schools, and coordinated by district resident Patti Nardelli, area Veterans will be treated to a breakfast feast on Veterans Day that will be sponsored by Project HOPE and St Hugh’s Parish.

Students at our primary schools have been busy creating cards, offering a heart felt thanks for their service. Intermediate grade students kept a busy schedule in their art rooms, creating banners proclaiming their thanks. Students in our 6th grader center repurposed Halloween candy with a special message to our vets that will be a welcome treat for later in the day.  Middle school students wrote letters detailing what the sacrifices made by our veterans in the cause of freedom means to them, and many of our high school students, who set leadership examples through their respective youth groups, churches, synagogues, scout troops, sports teams, and clubs -- generously give their time to help.  

The South Huntington community joins in thanking our nation’s Veterans for their commitment to our liberty and freedom.
