COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Every year, Russell Middle School hosts a special Veterans Day celebration to help students learn more about what military veterans did, and do.
The festivities include live music, dance performances, fundraising for Honor Flight, and students writing cards to military members.
Military members and veterans are welcome to help the school celebrate the holiday.
"It's really a good event to get them connected, and a way to give back, to pay tribute, and to honor our veterans and all of our military, and for them to learn," teacher Katie Reynolds-Sandstrom said.
The event is at 2 p.m. Friday at Russell Middle School.
