Veteran's Day at WV

Fourth graders were read a book called America's White Table in honor of Veteran's Day.  The book discussed the sybolism of  a white table that  has been set across America in mess halls and at military events to honor America’s Armed Forces, especially those missing in action and those held prisoner of war.  It is a solitary, small table where no one will ever sit.  The small table with a white cloth honors a soldier's pure heart when he or she answers this country's call to duty.  A lemon slice and grains of salt on a plate show a captive soldier's bitter fate and tears of families waiting for loved ones to return.  An empty chair at the table represents the missing soldiers. A black napkin symbolizes the sorrow of captivity. A glass represents the meal that won't be eaten. A white candle is on the table for peace and a red rose is in a vase tied with a red ribbon for the hope that all our missing will return someday.

Students shared reasons about why it is important to honor, admire, and respect our veterans and wrote thoughtful essays to be displayed in the hall.

The representatives from Raptor brought three different birds of prey to the school.  The students were able to see a scavenger (Turkey Vulture), and 2 predators (Red Shoulder Hawk and a Screech Owl) up close.  They discussed the birds’ roles and importance in the ecosystem.
