Veteran’s Day

Posted: November 11, 2014 in Uncategorized

Today was a different kind of day for me.

First, I’m in a new school/district/state. When I was back in Emporia, KS (the founding city of Veteran’s Day) the schools are closed and teachers are in Professional Development. So this year having students today was a big change.

We had an assembly first off this morning honoring our Veteran’s and also just having a great lesson about the history of today.

Our PreAP 8th Grade History class did all the research about the day, wrote their own speeches, then presented to the entire school. I think that was an awesome way to help teach our students about why we celebrate the day.

Thank you to all Veteran’s current and past who have served for the United States of America.
