Military Family Appreciation Event

Published on: 5/11/2022


On May 11th, Ellis celebrated our military families with an appreciation breakfast. The event was organized by Ms. Rebecca and Mr. Wes, our school counselors, and was made possible with generous donations of food and time by the Ellis administration, the PTA, and our PTA Bobcat Dads.

The Ellis Upper Elementary Chorus, directed by Ms. Jennifer, sang three songs including "Thank You Soldiers" which you can view at this link

It was a beautiful event and we thank our military families for attending and for their service.

When I lay my head down ev'ry night
and go to sleep in peace,
I can stay there knowing all is well,
while you're standing on your feet.
Keeping watch, protecting shore to shore,
in the air and oceans, too,
defending freedom at all cost,
for the red, white and the blue.​
Thank you, oh thank you,
men and women brave and strong,
To those who served so gallantly
we sing this grateful song.
To the soldiers who have traveled
on to countries far and near,
in peace and war you paid the price
for the cause you hold so dear.
That we may wake each morning bright,
and know that freedom rings,
because of your great sacrifice,
your country joins to sing: CHORUS
