   Last week Friday, students at Murray Park/Quest Elementary School observed Veterans Day with a program in the school’s gymnasium.

   In addition to several recitations, the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance, participants were invited to celebrate the many veterans in attendance at the event.

   Elementary students also honored those who’d sacrificed for the country with several songs.

   Two high-schoolers, meanwhile, played “Taps” in the hallway on their trumpets.
