Mrs. Wines 3rd grade class took a field trip to various sites around Ely to discuss Ely veterans and their contributions to our national freedoms. They collected rubbings they could take home as a remembrance of the experience.

All 1st grade students enjoyed a visit from Mr. John Padilla, an Ely veteran and former member of the U.S Army. He spoke to the students about military service, the value of that service, and even taught them how to salute! Mr. Padilla is currently a paraprofessional at David E. Norman.

Former military officer, Melissa Briggs, also spoke to students about military service. Mrs. Briggs works in the Special Education Department at DEN.

DEN students and faculty thank the men and women who have and do protect the freedoms we enjoy in our country. HAPPY Veteran's day!
