ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Veteran’s Day may be set aside as a single event every year, but one local school is trying to recognize our service members, every day.
Rockford Christian Schools hosted a Veteran’s Day assembly today honoring our nation’s servicemen and women. Some students even spoke about their experiences with family members who have served. The rally was designed to teach children the importance of our serving our country.
“It enlightens them to the truth but it also teaches them the idea of respect and leadership and how important that is in the development of them here at our school,” said Assistant Principal Glenn Smith.
State Representative Joe Sosnowski also left a video message to thank veterans for their service.
