Close to Home: Jericho Honors Veterans

Middle Country Central School District’s Jericho Elementary School recently hosted and honored a special group of 42 veterans for Memorial Day, all of whom are family members of Jericho students. The veterans were welcomed with patriotic signs, specialized “Thank You to Our Veterans” letters, a student-led national anthem, and poppy corsages to honor the beloved parents, grandparents and siblings.


The event was made possible due to the organizing and creativity of dedicated teachers Mrs. Triandafills, Mrs. Campanelli and Mrs. Kempf. The District continues to seek opportunities that allow its students to give back to the community and showcase the career paths of those in our Middle Country community.
