November 23, 2011 - Fifth graders at Davisburg Elementary marched to Davisburg Cemetery, Nov. 11, for their Veterans Day observance.

Teachers Stephanie Creasey and Julianne Strong organized the annual trip with Springfield Township Clerk Laura Moreau. The students walk to the cemetery in a silent, single file line holding flags, which they place in holders at each veteran's grave, Creasey said.

"As we place a flag, we read the name out loud and say thank you for your service," she said.

After the flag placement, students completed a scavenger hunt, gathering information about veterans from every war from the Revolution through Vietnam. They also made careful rubbings of veterans' headstones.
