Veterans Day Celebration at Riverside School


On Tuesday, November 9th, 2021, Riverside School hosted its annual Veterans Day Ceremony to honor service men and women, both past and present. An annual tradition for the past 21 years, the school held the celebration on the school’s front lawn. Fifth and fourth grade classes were invited to participate along with a handful of volunteers, school staff and local veterans. Guests in attendance included First Selectman Fred Camillo, Police Chief Jim Heavey, and Veteran Peter LeBeau.  


Mr. Weiss led the event where traditional elements of the ceremony took place including the raising of the flag, the laying of the wreath to the area dedicated to the 7 veterans who attended Riverside School, and participation in the Pledge of Allegiance. Guests were also treated to a pre-recorded song titled “We Honor You” by the 5th grade chorus, led by music teacher Jessica Punchatz.


Students in grades K-3 will have the opportunity to watch a recording of the event and engage in other various activities throughout the day on Thursday.
