Both Cassingham Elementary and Bexley Middle School are inviting veterans and active service members to their schools' annual Veterans Day assemblies on Nov. 11.

"We would like for veterans and service persons and their family members to come to the school for recognition and thanks," said Deborah Forsblom, Cassingham music specialist.

Forsblom noted that students plan to sing the songs of the five branches of the military, recite poetry and express their gratitude. A Cassingham teacher who is an active reservist will speak about her service as well.

The middle school event will be held from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 11 in the Cassingham Theater at 250 South Cassingham Road. The elementary school event is in the same place at 2:30 p.m.

In addition, BMS assistant principal Jason Caudill said students would like to obtain names and/or photographs of veterans and active service members for use in the assembly. To provide photos, contact Caudill at 237-4277.
