(WTNH)– Just ahead of Veterans Day, a number of schools are planning to honor our local veterans Thursday.

Students at East Haven Academy will pay tribute to veteran family members and friends by performing skits, song and poems.

In Wolcott, students at Frisbie Elementary School will honor 26 veterans at a Veterans Day assembly.

All veterans are invited to attend a program at the St. Mary’s – St. Michael’s School in Derby.

And family members of students who have served in the military will be attending a celebration ceremony at Edgewood Magnet School in New Haven. They will be talking about their experience while serving our country.
