Veterans Day 2013 recap

As part of our Veterans Day Ceremony we thought it was important to offer Oakley’s students an opportunity to tell us who their military heroes are. This year the Veterans Day Committee selected three winners.

In the Kindergarten-5th grade category our winner was a first grader at Brentwood Elementary, who resides in Oakley. Ms. Jezebel Flores:

Last was Teanna Goodman whose winning submission eloquently captures the spirit of the day. Teanna is a Senior at Freedom High School and will be joining the Navy upon graduation.

    Sorry about not having the flags for your ceremony, we would like to donate flags and the poles for you to always have for your events. Do you have a place to keep them when we bring them over?
