Each year on Veterans Day, November 11th, we take time at East School to show our respect and gratitude to the Veterans of the United States Armed Forces. We use this opportunity to educate our students about the history of Veterans Day and the important contribution and courage that Veterans demonstrate for our country and the freedoms that we hold here.
This year, our Veterans Day presentation returned to an in-person assembly for our students, with student speakers, music, and Veteran guests. Each Veteran who attended received a packet of hand-made cards from our students. East families also shared photos of family members who have served in the Armed Forces; we honored them all through our East School Honor Board in the main lobby.
