Thank You to our Veterans

Thank you to our Veterans who visited the Jr./Sr. High School Social Studies classes on Oct. 6th and 8th. Each year, students in grades 7-8, as well as grade 11 feel privileged to hear these real-life experiences. This annual Veterans Day Program welcomed the Marines, Army, Navy and the Air Force over a 2-day period. One marine explained, “The life we lead as civilians is very different than the life we led as soldiers.” Students thanked them for their service, and they were grateful to be able to share their stories and answer many questions. They spoke of combat, training, boot camp, and war, and all agreed they would do it all over again if asked. Thank you for your service as we honor all Veterans this upcoming Veteran’s Day.
