On November 11th, 2013, Randolph Middle School held their annual Veterans Day Celebration. It was a day where students honored, remembered and celebrated those who served our country. Students had the opportunity to meet with veterans whose service ranged from WWII to present day. Event coordinator Doreen Madalian continued These classroom visits gave RMSstudents an insight beyond a history book lesson but more importantly gave students a chance to say “thank-you” to those Veterans for all they have done. The middle school sidewalks were lined with American flags and yellow ribbons were tied to the trees near the building. We began day the with “Taps” played over the loud speaker as Veterans saluted the flag. From there Veterans joined classrooms and students rotated through (3) 30 minute question&answer sessions with different veterans. Guests from Joint Bases McGuire/Ft Dix/Lakehurst and Picatinney Arsenal were in attendance as well as our own Family Veterans. Additionally some of our students were able to Skype Afghanistan, speaking with Major Mike Hill, and all students wrote thank-you letters/cards to veterans. Brunch concluded the celebration. PTO Moms and Dads made our brunch possible through their generous donations.
