CHAMISA News:

Chamisa Elementary School in White Rock honored veterans Friday at a special lunch ceremony. The special event included 29 veterans, a flag ceremony by Pack 20 Scouts, patriotic songs by primary students, and presentation of letters and cards from students wearing red, white and blue.

Veterans joined their hosts for lunch and each veteran was individually announced and recognized for his or her service. The gym was ablaze with red, white and blue and tables were decorated with informational centerpieces explaining the origins of Veterans’ Day and facts about military services.

Chamisa’s front lobby has been transformed into a Veterans’ Wall and staff, students and community members are displaying photos and accounts of military service by family and friends. Chamisa will continue this tribute throughout the month of November, as the school’s students, teachers and staff remember and honor those who have served.
