Saint Francis Xavier students honor Veterans

5th graders at Saint Francis Xavier school in La Grange hosted a Veterans Day mass and reception for approximately 100 guests.

On Monday, November 12 the 5th graders at Saint Francis Xavier school in La Grange hosted a Veterans Day mass and reception for approximately 100 guests.  Veterans spoke with our students in small groups about their military service experience.  The event was part the 5th grade service theme - Honoring Veterans and Active Duty Service members.  Each grade at the school has a different service theme.  A highlight of this all-school service program takes place on December 7 when all 600 students will go out into the community to do service projects.
