South Side School held an to honor veterans last Friday. South Side students shared winning posters and essays as well as a PowerPoint presentation on the war memorials in Washington D.C. In addition to patriotic songs performed by the students, South Side hosted a guest from Honor Flight New England, a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s Veterans for all of their sacrifices. Through donations they transport heroes to Washington D.C. to visit their memorials (at no cost to the veterans). Throughout the year, students will be collecting change (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters) to donate to this organization. The goal is to collect enough money to sponsor at least one veteran on a trip to his memorial.
