On November 12, Grand Prairie Elementary School students participated in an all-school Veterans Day sing with students inviting family members who are veterans. The program was conducted under the direction of music instructor Shannon Diehl.
Technology instructor Barb Campbell assembled two story vides using photos of veterans who are friends or family members of Grand Prairie students and staff.
All 750 students at the school also made cards for veterans. Teachers Becky Cleveland and Carolyn Stanek who have sons serving in the military delivered the cards to the Manteno Veterans Home. The school also collected items to send overseas to the troops as care packages.
