MASON, OH – Mars Hill Academy sixth grade students recently held "World War II" day, a culmination of weeks of studying about this pivotal time in world history. Students gave presentations on a variety of WWII topics, dressed in period costumes, played games, and had an authentic WWII luncheon complete with SPAM, a truly American food icon. Many students wore the actual uniforms and displayed medals, including a Purple Heart, from their great-grandparents who served in the war. An MHA sixth-grade tradition, World War II Day honors those who served, and those who gave all, to our country.
