Mason Intermediate School held its twelfth annual school-wide Veterans Day Parade and Celebration - and this year with Mason Elementary sharing the building a whole new crop of third and fourth graders were able to join in the celebrations. The parade traveled the route from the MI cafeteria to the ME gym. Third, fourth and sixth grade students waved hand held flags in the hallways as Veterans and their student hosts walk the parade route.

 

The beautiful program included poems read by fifth graders selected by their peers, and songs from the MI Choir under the direction of Marylee Vennemeyer and with support from STEAM teachers Nick Washington and Jim Vennemeyer


Former US Air Force Master Sergeant Mark Haake shared, “I was so honored to be asked by our neighbor Mitalee to be her guest as Mason Intermediate recognized veterans. The kids read poems they wrote, asked questions about our service and then we walked through the halls getting high fives by hundreds of kids. Then they held an assembly where they sang patriotic songs. Thanks so much to all of the staff and students at MI. What an amazing start to the day!” Veteran's Day
