Ocean Avenue Students To Hold 'Beautiful' Veterans Day Event
Posted on 11/07/2014

Ocean Avenue Elementary School students will honor veterans at their annual Veterans Day assembly, at which older students teach younger ones about the day, with help from veterans. The assembly starts at 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 10.

“Our fifth grade students come together in an assembly to teach our younger students about Veterans Day,” said Principal Beverly Coursey. “Students research and share in their own words the history and meaning behind the day.  Fifth graders invite veterans they know to our assembly. Our students introduce each of them, by sharing their personal connection and their service.”

She added, “This assembly is beautiful to attend. The students have practiced over the last two weeks and run the entire program on their own.”

The Portland Public Schools’ Ocean Avenue Elementary School is located at 150 Ocean Avenue. For more information on the assembly, contact the school at 874-8180.
