Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day is Tuesday, November 11th and is held every year to thank our veterans and their families for the incredible sacrifices they make for our country. This year our elementary classes will have guest speakers in their classrooms to talk to them about our military. Our middle and high school social studies teachers will talk about Veteran's Day and the importance of this day in their classes. Our 9-10th grade students are invited to an assembly on Veteran's Day at 1:40 pm to honor our veterans. We would like to attend all of our community veterans to join us during our assembly so they may be honored and thanked for their service.
