DRAPER -- Like many students across Utah, students at Channing Hall sang their hearts out at a school performances Tuesday for Veterans Day.

The first-graders performed "God Bless the USA," complete with matching red shirts and coordinated movements. And the third-graders learned the Pledge of Allegiance in sign language.

They also invited veterans in their Draper community to attend the performance; one of them recently returned from Afghanistan.

Those who have served sat in places of honor on the stage. They also had a chance to relay their experiences and help students learn more about what it means to serve and protect America's freedom.

Parents help orchestrate this assembly every year at the charter school.

"It's moving and inspiring to all who attend," said parent Rachal Milford.
