Students at Carroll County schools found creative ways to observe Veterans Day last week, honoring those who have served our country’s military last week.

Fifth-graders at Eureka Springs Middle School came together to recognize the veterans in their own families.

Fifth-grade teacher Lynda Miller said the objective of the project was so the students would start a conversation with their parents and possibly learn something about their family.

“We did this so we could recognize our men who gave their lives or did wonderful things so we could live in a free country,” Miller said.

Paraprofessional John Cummings said he thinks it’s important to have kids open up a conversation they might not normally have with their families.

“When parents tell them, it probably means a little more,” Cummings said. “I think it’s good for them to start figuring that out.”
