The Cullins Family is passionate about honoring our Veterans. On Tuesday, November 11th there was a Veteran’s Day breakfast held at Cullins Elementary. The students decorate the hallways and invited a Veteran in their family to join them for breakfast. Students lined hallways with United States flags while welcoming and thanking our visiting Veterans. We were fortunate to host veterans from each of the military branches for breakfast.
