Mapleton honors local Veteran'sPublished by julie.peery on Sat, 11/12/2016 - 22:33
Friday was an extra special day at Mapleton Elementary! Five local Veterans visited each grade level where students showed their gratitude through hundreds of cards written, posters made, poems and songs performed, and even salutes and many rounds of applause. It was a humbling experience as these men briefly shared their stories of service and received the warm "welcomes" and "thank yous" from Mapleton students. Even as the Veteran's were leaving and waved goodbye to those in the lunchroom, students stood, cheered and clapped showing their respect and appreciation. We truly are grateful for the dedication of all of our Veterans.
