When 5 and 95 Come Together

When 5 and 95 come together, great things happen!  The Kindergarten class made another visit to the Butte Senior Living Facility.  The Kindergarten students performed a play to Jan Brett’s book, The Hat.  They also sang a few songs and even partnered up with a resident to do a greeting song together.  The rest of the time was spent doing some coloring together.   The most wonderful interactions take place through shared activities.  We look forward to our next visit!

The Boyd County Veterans Day program was held on Monday, November 12th. The program began with the Posting of the Colors by the Color Guard, followed by an opening by Student Council President, Chase Harmon, and the JH/HS choir singing the National Anthem. The crowd then joined in saying the Pledge of Allegiance. The program continued with the JH/HS choir singing “Blades of Grass and Pure White Stones”. The Boyd County Band was next with the high school members playing “Patriotic Snippets”, and the junior high members playing “America”.  The Elementary students joined in singing “Your a Grand Old Flag/Fly High”. All musical pieces were led by Mrs. Denise Hausmann.

Next the Veterans in the crowd were recognized and applauded, followed by special guest Ken Stenka, a Veterans Service Officer for Holt, Boyd, and Wheeler Counties. He read a poem, and presented all present Vietnam Veterans with a special lapel pin. The program closed with the playing of “Taps” by Halie Carson and the retiring of the Colors.
