Students at Jordak honored our Veterans on Friday, Nov. 10 with a special ceremony. Students heard several songs from the JES Choir, including the National Anthem, My Country Tis of Thee and Americans We. The Burton-Middlefield American Legion Post 459 & Auxiliary performed a special flag ceremony giving the final-folded symbol to Principal Kelly Bearer for display at the school. SSgt. Rolf Hamrick (grandfather to Emma, Abby, and Natalie S.) also spoke to students about his time in the service, sharing a tale about a parachute jump that almost didn’t end so well. The ceremony ended with a slideshow featuring Veterans of our students and staff. It was a beautiful tribute to those who have served – everyone left feeling extremely proud! Thank you Veterans!
