REED CITY — G.T. Norman Elementary School was full of patriotic pride as staff and students opened their doors to community veterans and families with a program honoring their service.
For weeks, students started every morning singing patriotic songs to prepare for the special day. They created artwork that filled the hallways with signs of freedom. Pictures of family members who have served or are currently serving were brought to school to be part a slideshow welcoming the wall to wall crowd. Teachers, students and many volunteers put a lot of work into the ceremony.
