Veterans Day Ceremony
United States Veterans and Members of the Armed Services and their families are invited to attend a Veterans Day Ceremony in the Pea Ridge High School Gym on Monday, November 11 at 10:00 AM. The High School Band, Choir, and Student Council have worked hard to make this ceremony one that will recognize our Veterans for their courage, duty, and devotion to our country. This year’s guest speaker will be Merle White.
There will be refreshments in the gymnasium foyer and time to visit after the ceremony. Please feel free to wear your uniform to help us honor the armed forces. We also encourage you to sign our guest book when you arrive.

Veterans Day Celebration
We have our annual Veterans Day celebration coming soon! It will take place on Monday, November 11, at 2:00 p.m. in the Intermediate School Gym, and will last approximately 45 minutes. Everyone is invited. Our special guests will be your loved ones – anyone you know who is a Veteran is invited to be our guests of honor! After some singing, they will be asked to stand with the child who invited them and introduce themselves. It makes for a very special time!
The students are asked to wear patriotic colors (any combination of red, white, and blue). Out of respect for the day and the service of these special guests, no hats will be permitted during the assembly.
Lost & Found
We have lots of missing clothes looking for their owner! Please remind students to check out the Lost & Found.
