Third grade students at Michael Griffin Elementary paid tribute to veterans and the serving military with a concert of patriotic songs.

Following months of diligent practice under the guidance of music teachers Cynthia Brodt and Jason Ritchie, the students took to a stage festooned with a giant American flag, balloons and sparking musical notes. Cub Scouts from Dens 2 and 5 of Pack 281 led the Pledge of Allegiance to the American and Texas flags prior to the concert.

There was standing room only as a large audience of family and friends packed the school gym. The students encouraged the audience to join them in singing “My Country Tis of Thee” and “America the Beautiful.” For the finale, Principal Jackie Keithan invited veterans from the community to join the students on stage so their personal service could be recognized.
