A sea of red, white and blue spanned the district on May 22, 2015 in honor of Memorial Day. Students at each of the district’s elementary schools participated in events for Memorial Day to honor our country’s heroes. Locust Valley Intermediate School and Ann MacArthur Primary School held their events around the flagpoles in front of each building. Bayville Intermediate School and Bayville Primary School students marched to Bayville Village Hall for their ceremonies.

The students sang songs, members of the band and orchestra played patriotic pieces and poems were read aloud. Members of the local American Legions were invited and honored for their service.  Children from kindergarten through fifth grade carried flags and laid flowers at the flagpole for soldiers who lost their lives. At each ceremony, one member of the school band played Taps to honor those fallen soldiers. 

On behalf of the entire school district, we remember and thank our veterans for all of their sacrifices.
