On Friday, October 5, 2018, Kendra Lipert, Joaquin Beard, Ashley Petrovick, and Addy Collings, from Lane Intermediate School, laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery.  

“The event was part of the 7th and 8th grade trip to Washington DC.  We were all really proud of the opportunity to pay tribute to fallen heroes,” said, Principal, Liz Kayzar, “Our students were deeply moved when they toured the cemetery.”

The Arlington National Cemetery has evolved from a place of necessity to a national shrine to those who have honorably served our Nation during times of war – including every military conflict in American history – and during times of peace. 

The cemetery is the final resting place for more than 400,000 active duty service members, veterans and their families. It is a living tribute to our Nation’s past and how it continues to thrive through the service and sacrifice of those willing to dedicate their life to its ideals.

The rolling green hills are dotted with trees that are hundreds of years in age and complement the gardens found throughout the 624 acres of the cemetery. This impressive landscape serves as a tribute to the service and sacrifice of every individual laid to rest within the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.
