With Veteran’s Day celebrations being planned throughout the country, North Canton City Schools is producing a documentary, “A Thousand Words: For Those Who Served” to honor veterans this year.

North Canton City School District's TV11 is now putting together the video, which includes dozens of photos of your favorite veterans
TV production students at Hoover High are hard at work putting together a Veterans Day video that will air on TV11 — a video that will showcase dozens of veterans and active military personnel from the North Canton area. Students wrote letters to veterans — some past, some present, and some veterans the students knew, and some they didn't.

Students gathered in the gymnasium this afternoon to honor veterans
Schools throughout North Canton commemorated Veterans Day in many ways today, and North Canton Patch was able to stop by one to see how they did it. Inside Orchard Hill Elementary at about 2:30 p.m. today, students gathered to watch the U.S. flag being folded, to sing and to say why veterans were important to them. Pictured are students — dressed in their best red, white and blue — singing inside their school gymnasium. If you attended any of the ceremonies at a school in North Canton, feel free to share it in this update. Or, just tell us how you chose to celebrate veterans today. And a big thanks to all our veterans, from North Canton Patch.
