Thank you Veterans!

Students and staff of EMS ISD honored veterans on Friday, November 8, and Monday November 11, 2019. We thank all veterans for their service. Another big thank you for all those veterans who shared their time and experience with our students.

Remington Point Elementary started celebrating early on Friday.  Students were greeted at the door by military members and then shared "Pastries with Patriots".
