This morning OHS had our 2nd ever Veteran's Day assembly for our students. This assembly was to inform and showcase to our students just how thankful we are for our Veterans. The students were able to listen to Veteran speakers from each branch of the military and learn about their experiences. They also heard our 5 student essay winners share their writings, learned about how to fold a flag, and listened to our band and choir perform. Throughout the assembly pictures of area Veterans were displayed. Our students did a wonderful job during this assembly! Thank you to all of our Veterans as we celebrate Veteran's Day!
