Barbara and Dave Beltz have been putting on a Veterans Day appreciation program with her students for many years. Staff and students of El Nido Elementary School attended one of her programs, and then put on a patriotic Memorial Day program. They were inspired by her and her students.
El Nido students from the "Little Community of El Nido" presented a Memorial Day program on May 22.
What a delight it was for me to attend and see young people showing respect and patriotism for our country. They honored those who have sacrificed for our country because "freedom isn't free."
We should remember to thank >Principal Rae Ann Jimenez, staff and students for the time and dedication that went into practicing for this wonderful program.
We as Americans should take the time to support and attend these types of patriotic events that our young people participate in, along with the educators who want to give students awareness of how we are blessed to live in America. I hope you will take the time to see the students who understand patriotism for our country. My husband Bill served for 25 years in the Army and his death was connected to the service.
Mrs. Beltz will put on a Veterans Day patriotic program at Winton's Winfield Elementary School in November, where she teaches. We should thank Mrs. Beltz's principal Kim Sherman and staff for supporting her in this ongoing program. God bless America.
