Honored veterans invited to breakfast at Elsberry

Posted on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 8:58 am

The Elsberry Middle School Student Council will be hosting a Veteran’s Day breakfast to honor the Elsberry heroes that served in the military.

The breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 9 and end at 9 a.m.

Following the breakfast, an assembly will be held in the high school gym from 9:15 to 9:45 for the veterans and their families. Any student who has a relative attending will be able to join them for the breakfast and the assembly. Veterans will also have the opportunity to visit the child’s classroom.

Notes will be sent home with the students as to give parents the chance to fill out the bottom of the sheet. This will allow the school to know who will be attending the breakfast and possibly visiting classrooms.

When the veteran arrives, he/she will go to the cafeteria, where a student council representative will escort the child from his/her classroom to the cafeteria to eat with the veteran and attend the assembly.

For more information or to RSVP contact Summer Hagemeir or the Elsberry Middle School Office at 573-898-5554 by Monday, Nov. 5.
