Staff and students of the Babylon School District recently expressed their respect and gratitude toward the nation’s veterans by showing their appreciation in multiple creative and patriotic ways.

Babylon Elementary School recently hosted its annual “Patriotic Sing-a-long,” inviting family members, distinguished guests and veterans to the school. During the event, the students performed patriotic themed songs, including “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “This Land is Your Land,” for all to enjoy. 

Additionally, art student representatives from Babylon Junior-Senior High School, along with Babylon Junior-Senior High School art teacher Cheryl Schweider, presented Babylon Elementary School and the attending guests with their beautiful, patriotic-themed art piece titled “The Spirit of America,” which featured cascading pieces of denim to resemble the American flag. 

Babylon Memorial Grade School also celebrated Veterans Day by honoring 10 visiting veterans. During the event, students and staff members sang songs, recited poetry, and presented individual artwork, along with a “Missing Mans Table,” a place of honor meant to represent the servicemen and women who never returned home.
