Plymouth High School

The PHS Band played “Semper Fidelis,” a drum cadence, “Star-Spangled Banner” and “Navy Hymn.” The choir sang “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless the USA.”

The program also featured a short oral presentation by the Advanced Speech class. VFW Post 5612 provided the Color Guard, and two veterans were recognized: David Heinen and Dave Majerus.

The program concluded with a veterans salute outside, a moment of silence and the playing of Taps.

Riverview Middle School

Riverview presented a program for students in the auditorium, which was coordinated by the eighthgrade integrated studies class taught by Sara Schubert and Diane Rosenbeck.

Local veterans were involved in the processional with service flags, and also played Taps and did a rifle salute. Veterans were invited to stand when they heard their branch’s tune during the Service Song Medley, while students and staff applauded.

Head custodian Dick Seefeldt, who served in the U.S. Air Force from 1976 to 1980, was the guest speaker. He invited those to stand who personally had served or knew someone currently serving – by the end of his speech, nearly everyone was standing.

The eighth-grade choir, led by Rachel Trempe, sang the National Anthem and “Danny Boy.” The eighth-grade band, led by Sarah Reabe, played a combination piece that included “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag.”

In addition, educational interpreter Kristan Orvis and fifth-graders in Josh Batzner’s and Tanya Strauss’s classes presented “God Bless the U.S.A.” in American Sign Language.

Parkview Elementary School

Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 assisted with Parkview’s program, as it has for many years.

The program, moved inside because of the weather, opened with the posting of the colors, the Pledge of Allegiance led by fourth-graders and a recording of third-graders singing the National Anthem.

Remarks were made by fourth-graders Shania Arneson, Treyton Malnory, Allison Schwartz, Mck- enna Flood, Emerson Cotter, Logan Entringer, Jasmine Keller, Madison Anderson, Mary Feldman, Chloe Kuhlow and Cortni Harder.

The program concluded with a moment of silence, a rifle volley and the playing of Taps.

Parkview created a picture collage in the front hall honoring veterans who are friends and family of Parkview students and staff. Students also made cards that were sent to the Veterans Administration hospital in Madison.
