Veteran Visits MMS Students



Vietnam veteran James Smith poses with some MMS students by their Tribute to Our Troops display. Smith visited sixth graders to share his experiences. All MMS students recently completed a project in which they each interviewed an American veteran. Students then created a display with their veterans’ photographs and descriptions of their service. This project is part of a larger unit about patriotism in which students wrote essays to compete in the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen essay contest.
