At 8:00 am on November 10, Manteno High School greeted a group of runners for the Armed Forces School to School Veterans Day Awareness Run. Many shock hands with these Veterans and thanked them for their service.

Then during morning announcements a roll call of those currently serving and are former Manteno graduates was held and bell rang for their safety. The Panther Vision team also put together a picture presentation of those currently serving for the students to see during Study Hall.  This year we were able to honor a current student who has joined the National Guard – Viviana Rodriguez. The school then honored those that had served their country and are currently serving the school as staff members with a roll call.

During the day Thursday names of family members who have served in the military were collected and a roll call of these individuals was held.

Finally during the past few weeks students were encouraged to write notes and letters to those who are serving so that next week they can be sent in the holiday care packages. These will be packaged up next week as an Interact activity and coordinated by several individuals within the district.
