You may participate as little or as much as you would like. You may stay just for the assembly or stay with us all day. You may wear your uniform (which the kids LOVE) or just bring it with you to show. This day is about you, our veterans. No matter how long you decide to stay or how much you decide to participate, I promise that the tribute from our students will be memorable. If you choose to join us for breakfast, please note that school begins at 800. Please schedule your arrival time before or after that so you do not get caught up in our drop-off traffic. It is imperative that I receive an RSVP from any of our veterans who will be joining us as I must plan accordingly for lunch, space and a very special surprise. Please RSVP no later than Monday, November 8, 2021 to: Sandy Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org or 720-670-6031 (call or text). We would like to invite all of our families to join us for the assembly celebrating our brave men and women in uniform. Even if you are not a veteran I am confident that you will be moved by the amazing tribute that our students pay to our veterans We will also display our “Wall of Honor” featuring photographs of our veterans. The “Wall” will be on display from November 1 until November 15. Anyone is welcome to turn in pictures of your US veteran family members, friends and neighbors to be displayed. We hope to fill every space on the wall this year. There is plenty of room so start sending them in now. Please be sure the pictures are marked with student’s name and teacher, so that I am able to return these photos to you. Please note that masks will be mandatory for all visitors regardless of vaccination status. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
