Fourth Grade Program - On November 10th, a group of our fourth graders performed a music program for Veterans Day. The program began with the Pledge of Allegiance and a special appearance by Bussey's very own reading skills specialist, Ms. Rogers, who played Taps on trumpet while dressed in her Navy uniform. The students performed multiple patriotic tunes including the Armed Forces Medley, God Bless America, and God Bless the USA. The latter featured a fourth grade soloist, Angel Delcid.
Through their preparation for this program, the students found a deeper sense of patriotism and pride in their country, as well as a deeper respect for veterans. It was very moving to see these students join together a mutual purpose: to show their thanks to our veterans and their pride in where they live. We enjoyed the opportunity to show our veterans how thankful we are for their service.
