Sam Fordyce Elementary honored veterans from all branches of the military on Friday, November 10, 2017. Veterans were welcomed in our school’s cafeteria where they were honored for serving or having served in our country’s military. The ceremony was opened by the La Joya High School’s JROTC in the presenting of colors followed by the choir leading the group in the Pledge of Allegiance and the pledge to the Texas Flag. The veterans and guests listened as the school’s choir sang the National Anthem followed by poems in both English and Spanish about the meaning of Veteran’s Day. The choir then performed the songs the American Soldier and America the Beautiful. Our principal, Mrs. Roxanna Peña, concluded the program thanking the veterans for their dedication to our country. The veterans were then treated to a warm breakfast.
