All PCSD schools held Veterans' Day events this past Monday. The high school assembly marked the last celebration to be organized by Mrs. Sandy Merritt. Mrs. Merritt has voluntarily orchestrated this event for several years. This year she hosted her son, Command Sgt. Major Rick Merritt of the Fort Drum, New York, 10th Mountain Division. The event concluded, as it has every year, with Mrs. Merritt singing "God Bless America" to a standing ovation.
At the elementaries, students performed before students and veterans in attendance.
