Ms. Kimmel’s Kindergarten Class

Kindergarten teacher Ms. Kimmel collaborated with a fellow teacher from Hilliard, Ohio to contribute items for the “Mail Call” for a Vietnam War Veteran. The veteran took an Honor Flight from Columbus to Washington DC on October 19, 2019. Here are the kindergarten students with their special pictures for that very special Veteran!

Veteran’s Day Assembly

Our study body took part in the presentation of a flag and certificate to military veterans Gerald Purcell and Ray Petty. The veterans were presented with a flag that was flown over the United States Capitol on April 10, 1986, at the request of the Honorable Michael G. Oxley, Member of Congress.

Also, a big thanks to our KHS band and JROTC for participating in the Veteran’s Day Assembly.

We appreciate our veterans!
