Veterans Honored by Hillsborough Students

Triangle and Woodfern schools have special guests while recognizing Veterans Day.

Veterans were honored by students and staff at Triangle and Woodfern elementary schools this week, commemorating Veterans Day.

At Triangle Elementary School, students sang for veterans during an hour-long school-wide assembly. Afterward, veterans attended a reception in their honor. Many of them were friends and family of the students and staff, and the school extended its thanks and appreciation for their service and dedication.

At Woodfern Elementary School, retired Hillsborough High School teacher Barbara-Jo Kruczek played on her bugle to start the school’s Veterans Day assembly. Students introduced veterans, all family members of the students, that they had brought to school that day. One highlight was when bothers Noah and Adam Movshin, Skyped with their dad who is stationed in Afghanistan. Their father, Maj. Robert Movshin, an active duty soldier serving in the Army Reserve National Guard, talked to the audience about his experience as a soldier and what support means to troops and veterans.

The students loved having "our" Veterans come into Woodfern! It was a great opportunity for all of us to learn about helping in our communities.

Thank you again to Mrs. Pedersen and Woodfern for giving my husband, Major Robert Movshin, the opportunity to participate in their Veterans Day celebration! My boys were so proud to see their Dad address the school and its guests from so far away. How wonderful that WES takes the time to honor our Veterans near and far, young and old!
