Bridgewater Elementary School celebrated Veterans Day with an program Friday in partnership with Beyond the Yellow Ribbon.

Principal Nancy Antoine said Bridgewater has been holding the special ceremony as long as the school has been around, but members from Northfield’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon are invited, as are veterans each year.

“Without it, they just think Veterans Day is a day off from school,” Antoine said. “It’s teaching kids to think outside themselves, to take the time to say thank you.”
