Thomas Jefferson School students meet with local veterans at assembly
NORTH ARLINGTON (Dec. 16, 2010) — The fourth and fifth graders at Thomas Jefferson School in North Arlington attended an excellent assembly in honor of Veterans Day.
The veterans shared their experiences, answered questions and allowed the students to explore the memorabilia they had on display. As a homework assignment the students were asked to write down questions to ask the veterans. The questions were outstanding and the veterans candidly answered each question.
