On Friday, November 9th, Wilcox Tigers will honor Veterans’ Day with the 15th Annual “Bring-A-Veteran-To-Lunch Day”. The heartfelt event is coordinated by Shirley Browning, Mike Scolaro, and Sue Wozniak with the overwhelming support from the Wilcox PTA and staff, connected our students with the Veterans who have fought for our freedom.
Commemoration festivities began with the whole school gathered around the flagpole as Veterans led the students and staff in the “Pledge of Allegiance”. Mrs. Lori Bensie, a Wilcox music teacher, led an all school sing-along with the American traditional, “God Bless America”.
The Veterans will begin assembling at 10:30 a.m in the Canteen and then joined their student for lunch in our “Mess Hall”. During lunch, the Veterans were recognized by their armed service branch. Each hallway was decorated with artwork and writing samples to honor our Veterans. It is a very special day at Wilcox Primary School!
