Peeples hosts veterans

Peeples Elementary School recently hosted over 70 veterans for their annual Veterans Day Walk. Each veteran was escorted by a student host around the school hallways. Students lined the hallways and waved flags while singing patriotic songs they had learned in music class. A few of the veterans in attendance along with their student host included (from left) Naomi Censullo with Bonnie Censullo, Emmy Brubaker with Michael Brubaker, Chase Arnold with Scott Arnold and Noah Burnette with James Burnette.
