Special Events:

Students- Tomorrow, November 11 we celebrate Veterans Day.   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.  Yesterday we invited veterans from the George C. Evans Post 103 to have lunch with you in the cafeteria.  We hope you had a chance to welcome them.  We encourage you to think about the sacrifices veterans made and take a moment to thank them for their service!
