  • In their service

    Mills Lawn students honored veterans and current service members Monday, on the observed Veteran’s Day, by inviting them to a luncheon. Students gave readings on the history of the holiday, and the 5th- and 6th-grade choir sang the national anthem. The mood was celebratory, yet respectful.
