TUXEDO — O.J. Meekins’ George Grant Mason (GGM) School kindergarten class honored veterans from within the Tuxedo community and the Promenade at Tuxedo Place, the nearby assisted living residence, for Veterans Day.

Children presented veterans with crafts and were part of a short ceremony honoring them for their service to the nation during the recent gathering.

Participating kindergarteners were Joey Vega, Mariella Nissirioss, Colina Membreno, Tyler Marash, Nerla Paul, Lorelei Colletti, Victor Chacko, Max Mitchell, Santana Jackson, Anthony Tripoli, Khrisztian Caburnay, Nicholas Iazzetti and Matthew Arone.

“It’s important for us to offer teachable moments to our students, and often times this includes an opportunity to invite community residents into our school,” said Nancy Teed, Tuxedo School District interim superintendent. “We want them to understand the importance of honoring these wonderful people and to begin to understand the importance of Veterans Day, especially at this young age.”

The program was part of the school’s annual effort to recognize area veterans.
