Students at Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District recently brought their close family members who are veterans to visit the school and speak with students.

The Waverly Park Student Council hosted the event in celebration of Veterans Day. Nearly a dozen veterans were at the school to share their stories. Students welcomed the veterans with a grand entrance down a red carpet, gold flowers and songs. They were introduced to the veterans in the gymnasium and then spent more personal time with them as they visited individual classrooms. The students also presented the veterans with a Wall of Peace, Wall of Heroes and individual “Smiles” in the form of poems.
