Batavia Public Schools did their part this month to remember America's heroes for Veterans Day.

Various ceremonies and assemblies were held across the district, with local veterans and family members of students that are currently serving.

The flag-raising ceremony pictured here took place at Batavia High School. Two WWII veterans, Mr. Casey and Mr. Wagner, were in attendance.

Special thanks to Debi Paradiso for the photos.
