The fifth grade chorus will lead the entire school in singing several patriotic songs. A Veteran’s Administration documentary about the meaning of Veteran’s Day, narrated by popular young actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, will be shown.

Fifth-grader Nicole Carrillo will read a poem about her father, who is currently serving in Iraq. The program will end with a multi-media presentation giving tribute to all the veterans of Woodside families. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will take part in the opening and closing ceremonies.
