Honoring those who have served
Pre-K through 6th graders, faculty, staff and the community joined
together on Nov. 9 in honoring those who've served our nation at a
special veterans assembly in the high school gym. Nearly 50 local
veterans and military service members attended the ceremony.
"The assembly provided an opportunity to truly value our heroes and
focus on the meaning of Veterans Day as a larger community," said
Elementary Principal Andrea Polikoski. "We had 47 honored vets and
attending. We are a privileged community."

Schoharie Elementary reached out to local veterans
through communications with the parents/guardians of current students
(letters home, e-newsletter, etc.), using the school's SNN email
messaging system, through conversations with school faculty and staff
and by communicating with those who work with local veterans.
The assembly will become an annual event, and the school would be
honored to welcome more local veterans. To sign up for SNN,
