By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- Second graders at Girard Elementary School showed their appreciation for veterans with their first ever Veteran's Day program.

Latresha Woods directs the second graders through a performance during their Veteran's Day program.

The students sang songs, recited poems, and performed a dance for the veterans in attendance.

The students then provided gifts to the veterans, all to show thanks for their service.

"People make sacrifices for us...they don't even know us," music teacher Latresha Woods said after the program. "Because of those sacrifices, we need to learn how to say thank you."

Woods worked with the students on the songs and other performances the students performed during the program for over a month.
