Our school was blessed to participate in honoring our Veterans today in a Veterans Commemorative Mass at St. Ignatius. Following mass was a reception in our school. Several of the Veterans visited our classrooms and shared what they learned from serving our country. The morning concluded with an inspirational speech by Dr. Marrella about the importance of character, something we strive to teach and model to our students on a daily basis.
