Butterfield Elementary students pay tribute to their families’ veterans


Butterfield Elementary students are still observing Veterans Day with a Wall of Remembrance.

Second grade teacher Stephanie Rhinehart sponsored the Veterans Wall at the school.

Rhinehart is a Navy wife and an Air Force daughter. Her grandfather, brother and father-in-law also served in the U.S. military.

“Veterans Day is an important holiday for my family—which is why I sponsored the wall,” said Rhinehart.

Students from all grade levels, K-5, were encouraged to honor any and all of their families’ veterans, and many did, bringing in photos and write ups about those family members who served or are presently serving their country.

“It is my hope to continue the wall each year and, hopefully, watch it grow,” Rhinehart said.
