We Remember Our Veterans and Appreciate Those Who Serve

 Every year on November 11th, we celebrate Veteran’s Day. Veteran’s Day is a holiday that honors all of those who have served in the Armed Forces and our first grade students honored our veterans in various ways.

 One way that we honored our veterans was to listen to Sgt Joshua Moore, Nicholas Moore’s father. NIcholas is a first grader and is very proud of his father’s service as we all are! Mr. Moore was very kind to spend the little time he has with us. Mr. Moore is currently deployed in the Middle East. While he was here, he told the students how it was to serve overseas and how important it is to receive the support from his fellow Americans. The students asked Mr. Moore about how life as a Marine was and how difficult it was for him and his family during his time of deployment. After listening to this, all of the first grade students decided to write letters to both their active military and veterans.

Continuing with learning about Veteran’s Day, the first grade students hopped on a virtual airplane and went to London to learn about Armistice Day. The students participated in a live podcast that Discovery Education streamed live for this honorable day. The students learned about how people in Europe celebrated the 100th year anniversary of World War I.
