5th grade welcomes U.S. Army Lt. Col. Scott Danner
On Nov. 9, Schoharie Elementary's 5th-grade team
welcomed back retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Scott Danner to talk with
students about Veterans Day.
Danner spoke with students last year when his son
was in 5th grade. During his presentation, he explained the difference
between Veterans Day and Memorial Day, and gave some of the history
behind this day of observance. Danner also shared with the children his
experiences in the U.S. Army.
Teacher Mary Bates noted, "The students were very
interested and attentive during the presentation and had many questions.
The 5th-grade teachers and students appreciate Lt. Colonel Danner’s
willingness to speak to our students so that they may understand and
appreciate why this day is observed.
"We thank Mr. Danner and all of the veterans for
their service to our country."
