The students, faculty and administration of Marco Island Charter Middle School (MICMS) celebrated a “Salute to Veterans” program by donating $800 to the G.I. GO FUND for Disabled Veterans. The money was raised by students placing change into containers in their math classes and the faculty donating $5 each for the privilege of wearing jeans to school. The students were also allowed to wear ared, white and/or blue shirt in place of their uniform shirt.
The importance of honoring our veterans was explained to all of the students. As a follow-up program in May, the 192-member school band will present a “Salute to Veterans” concert to which the public will be invited.
