Hood View Junior Academy Celebrates Veteran's Day

January 01, 2011 | Holley Bryant

On Nov. 11, 2010, students at Hood View Junior Academy joined the annual Veteran's Day parade in Estacada, Ore. Dressed in red, white and blue, preschool and kindergarten students who couldn't make the 1.5-mile parade route rode in a beautiful float decorated by parents. Students marched alongside veterans who later gave the students a standing ovation for their participation. Afterward, students were honored for their patriotism at the Estacada Honor Service where they performed "God Bless America" to the appreciative crowd. Hood View hopes to make this celebration an annual tradition.
