Rhame Avenue School students of the East Rockaway School District created a Wall of Heroes that featured a display of stars in honor of Veterans Day. The stars contained photos of those heroes who have served, are serving or will serve the country, as well as Sept. 11 first responders, and display their names and respective branches of the military. Students throughout the school were invited to recognize the servicemen and women in their lives by decorating stars for their loved ones.  

Staff members also participated, including Principal Erik Walter, who created a star for his father who served in the U.S. Army. Mrs. Erin Kennedy brought in memorabilia from her grandfather, including a Purple Heart medal and an American flag. Rhame Avenue extends gratitude and appreciation to all.
