SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Immaculate Conception School took time out on Friday to honor veterans.

Nov. 11 marks a day when military veterans are remembered for their service. It was first celebrated in 1919. Then, it was called Armistice Day. In 1954, Congress officially changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

Immaculate Conception School held its annual school-wide Veterans Day celebration that honored members of the military, with a special focus on local veterans. The festivities began with a noteworthy flag raising outside that was conducted by the Boys Scouts and Girl Scouts. After moving inside, the pre-kindergarten students took center stage with a performance of songs.

Students and veterans attending the Veterans Day celebration were then treated to a slide show featuring veterans who were family members of the Immaculate Conceptions School's student body.  A prayer followed the slide show and each veteran attending was recognized for his or her service. Special mention was also made to veterans who were unable to make the ceremony. A performance by the Immaculate Conception Choir concluded the memorable Veterans Day observance.

The Immaculate Conception School on Manalapan Road opened its doors in 1960. It offers educational programs for grades pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.
