In celebration of Veteran's Day, Underwood School had the privilege of hosting a community program honoring our brave men and women who have so admirably and graciously served our country. The program included patriotic music by our school band and choir, an inspirational and emotional speech by Reverend Robert Kersten, and some patriotic messages/presentations delivered by local veterans. This program and the messages delivered continue demonstrate the need to recognize and appreciate all of the sacrifices that all of these brave men and women have made, which have allowed the rest of us the freedom we enjoy. Happy Veteran's Day from the Underwood School and a HUGE Rocket "Thank You" to all of our veterans and to those veterans who have passed -- your dedication, loyalty and sacrifices are truly appreciated. Also, a special "thank you" to our Underwood American Legion Post for allowing our school to host this most prestigious program/event. "Kudos" to our students who had the privilege to actively participate in this program, via their musical talents, or their writing talents or simply through their respectful attention and listening during the program.

The young eagles flight program, with 6 local pilots, flew the Underwood 7th grade class on Monday morning at the Fergus Falls airport. The young eagles program is a national program to get kids interested in all aviation jobs and to teach students about flying. The kids had a blast with some taking their first flights ever.

What a 'fun-tastic' morning at OtterBerry Farm! The kindergarten classes went through the corn maze, fed the animals, played and went for a wagon ride. We cannot wait to decorate our pumpkins :)
