On November 11, 2016, our school held an assembly to honor our Veterans. This assembly consisted of kids grades K-12, with parents and veterans also attending. The assembly started off with middle school principal Dr. Rozevink welcoming everyone, followed by the entrance of the flags with Mr. Riley leading the 7th and 8th grade band to play “Grand Old Flag.” Mrs. Hartbarger, the elementary principal, then led the Pledge Of Allegiance followed by the high school choir singing the national anthem. Up next was the kindergarten class singing “God Bless America” with the third graders singing “God Bless the U.S.A.” with third-grade teacher Ms. Rhodes and junior Sam McMaster singing a solo. Mrs. Wesley, who is the elementary music teacher, led the kindergarten through 4th grade in singing “Patriotic Medley.” “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was the performed by 6th through 8th-grade choir led by Mrs. Chamberlin. After all these groups performed Mr. Green who works with digital academy at our school and is also a U.S Army Major spoke and introduced our guest speaker MSgt. Michelle Ordway. She is a veteran, and she just recently moved into Liberty Center with her husband and kids this school year. To wrap up the assembly was junior band member Bradley Tonjes with “Taps” and the Removal of Colors by the VFW and American Legion.
