Special Events:

Students- Tomorrow we celebrate Veterans Day.  Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day.  Memorial Day (the fourth Monday in May) honors American service members who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle, while Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans–living or dead–but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

You will notice we have asked several veterans to be a part of our school days this week.  In-house veterans will lead us in the pledge throughout the week.  We’ve invited veterans from the George C. Evans Post 103 to have lunch with you in the cafeteria today.  We encourage you to think about the sacrifices veterans made and take a moment to thank them for their service.
Mickey Wentz, a math teacher at Littleton High school, will lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance today.  Mr. Wentz served in the United States Coast Guard for eight years as a Rescue Survival Swimmer and a Maritime Law Enforcement Member. He was stationed in San Francisco and Seattle.
