Prune Hill Penguins Honor Veterans and Military Personnel!

Our annual (and all-around favorite) assembly put on by our fabulous 5th grade and music teacher Mrs. Ray this morning. It was a wonderful tribute to veterans in our school community as well as currently serving military members. Click the link to view the slideshow, in case you missed it!  The assembly also included a Penguin Choir performance, recognition of veterans and service men and women in the audience, and students introducing current members of the 4 branches of military. Happy Veteran’s Day!
