PRICEVILLE, Ala. - Many elementary schools across the Tennessee Valley are honoring veterans this week.
Priceville Elementary hosted a program on Tuesday. The fifth graders and choir performed, and some fourth graders also had speaking parts.
Everyone involved in the program agrees it's important to start early teaching the kids the role veterans play in our country's growth and freedom.
"I think it's very important for our children to carry on the tradition of patriotism because that way they will learn about their heritage. and the sacrifices our veterans have made," said Susie Bagwell.
Bagwell says the programs help the kids realize they are the future of our country as well.
