GDW Honors Our Veterans

In honor of Veterans Day, the students and staff at Gary D. Wright Elementary School participated in a variety of activities. In addition to wearing red, white, and blue; we collected granola bars to send to troops; and wrote heartfelt letters giving thanks to those who have served and are currently serving in the U.S. Military.  In addition, we welcomed some distinguished guests to our school who provided us with an opportunity to learn about their experiences in the military and ask questions.  Thank you, Colonel Witczak and Technical Sergeant Pugh, for your service to our country and for taking time to talk to our Wildcats about Veterans Day!
