On November 11, 2021, the Midd-West School District held our annual Veterans Day Parade. The campus was filled with patriotism and enthusiasm as the students lined the sidewalks and roadways. Students arrived wearing creative outfits of red, white, and blue while others were carrying posters and flags honoring our Veterans. Music filled the air from the Midd-West Vocal and Band Department along with chants of “Thank You Veterans” from the elementary students. The parade was a terrific example of the Mustangs pulling our community together to honor and thank the local veterans.
