SALISBURY — Students at Sacred Heart Catholic School didn’t get to take today off like their public school friends, but they didn’t seem to mind.
Instead, they paid tribute to local veterans by inviting them to their school for breakfast, mass and special ceremony in the cemetery.
“They served our country and sacrificed a lot because they love us,” third-grader Marina Muller said.
About 50 veterans gathered at the school Friday.
Principal Frank Cardelle said he was pleased with the turnout because it gives students a firsthand account of history.
“No matter how much you read about it or how many movies you see, it’s not the same as hearing about it from someone who was there,” he said.
