Veterans Day Recognition

On Friday, November 11th we will be hosting our annual Veterans Day Recognition. Please invite your family members or friends who are veterans to this event. They can come to school with you at 8:25 am and participate in your first hour period. Then at 9 am we will be gathering in the big gym for this event. You will be allowed to sit with your visiting veteran on the honor chairs in the front. Afterwards we will have refreshments for you and your veteran in the library. Please encourage them to come and wear something from their branch of service. We will be honoring their time in the service and their sacrifices for our country.

On Friday don’t forget to wear your red, white and blue color, 8th grade will wear blue, 7th grade will wear white, and 6th grade will wear red. Thank you.

Bring a veteran to school on Friday, Nov. 11th!
