Every day we should thank our Veterans but today, November 11th, is especially important to acknowledge their service.  We thank our Veterans for their sacrifices and the privileges we have, for their commitment to our country, and for always keeping us safe. To ALL who have served and continue to serve… We thank you and appreciate you!

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

John F. Kennedy

As you enter the main lobby of the Georgia Elementary and Middle School you will notice a red, white, and blue paper chain that decorates the entryway.  A lengthy paper chain that was created by our Elementary students, Pk-4.  A single message crafted by every student, then connected to their peers, producing a chain with hundreds of heartfelt messages. This chain symbolizes the united appreciation and gratitude we have for those who have served and are currently serving.

In addition, our Elementary chorus sings “Thank You” to veterans and their families in the video below.  Our school appreciates you!  Please enjoy this GEMS TV Production and video and the Georgia Elementary School students as they share their gratitude and appreciation of all Veterans.
