Veterans Day Performance 2015

The MHS Band continued its long-standing tradition of honoring our nation's service members through its Veterans Day performances.  The band performed Mendota Veterans Day Ceremony in downtown Mendota, then provided music for the annual Veterans Day assembly held at MHS.

This year, students in Mr. Artman and Mr. Gehm's history classes researched the history behind some of our nation's most well-known patriotic music, such as the Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, America the Beautiful, and more.  The MHS Band collaborated with the history classes and performed the music that was researched.  Congratulations to all of the MHS students who worked so hard on this important day, and thank you to our Veterans and Service Members.
