     Veterans Day is November 11.  The federal holiday pays tribute to all those who served honorably in the military, whether in war or peace.  Marcellus Elementary School students and staff are proud to host a Veterans Assembly each November. 

     This year’s event is scheduled for November 9, at 1:45 p.m. and will be held in the high school gym.  While the annual event’s primary purpose is to honor veterans and currently serving military personnel, it also serves as an important avenue to educate students about core democratic values, the price of freedom, and to recognize and show respect for those who bravely serve.  Please join the school community as we recognize the significance of this day and thank those who have served.

   Mark your calendar for Fall Sports Recognition Night which will be held on November 9. The event kicks off in the high school gymnasium, at 6:00 p.m.  Student athletes in grades seven through twelve will be recognized for their athletic accomplishments throughout the fall season.

   In other news, a group of Marcellus High School FFA students participated in an overnight trip to the National FFA Convention, held in Indianapolis last week.   The group was accompanied by teacher and adviser Abby Asmus and chaperone and school board member Ed Asmus.
