Carroll Campuses Honor America's Military Heroes

The Carroll Dragons honored America’s Military Heroes in grand fashion this Veterans Day. Nearly every campus hosted patriotic assemblies Monday, Nov. 11, with the exception of Walnut Grove Elementary School and Rockenbaugh Elementary School. Walnut Grove hosted their Veterans Day event Friday, Nov. 8 and Rockenbaugh will host their celebration on Thursday, Nov. 14.

Many of the elementary campuses included performances from third and fourth grade students. Highlights include student choirs and in a unique show of patriotism, students and Old Union showed off their fancy footwork with an athletic routine set to patriotic music.

Students in the middle grades were treated to various guest speakers, some included older veterans who spoke of the historical significance of the military. One Dragon parent, in active military spoke with students at Eubanks Intermediate and Dawson Middle School in separate assemblies via Skype. U.S. Navy Captain, Johnny Marshall is the father of Jake (EIS) and Zach (DMS) Marshall. Capt. Marshall spoke to students from his location in the Horn of Africa.

Carroll Senior High School and Carroll High School featured performances by the Dragon Band. CHS student Sophia Formella sang the National Anthem to begin the Veterans Day assembly. Student Chris Weisberg played Taps to a standing crowd, marking the end of the Veterans Day event at CSHS.
