OLD LYME — Lyme-Old Lyme Schools commemorated Veterans Day with a breakfast for local veterans followed by ceremonies in each school incorporating speeches, music and singing to honor all veterans.
Lyme-Old Lyme Schools Superintendent Ian Neviaser told LymeLine exclusively by text, “We held ceremonies first at the middle school and then at the high school. Both were well attended.”
Regardless of age, all students were involved in the day’s events.
Neviaser noted, “On Friday afternoon, we had ceremonies at the elementary schools,” which were similar to those in the middle and high schools, but made age-appropriate.”
Neviaser continued, “The speeches from veterans and students were both very powerful and well received.”
He concluded, “As always, this day continues to be one of the most powerful lessons of the entire year as students get to see history in action.”
