Mustang Parents,

Veterans Day is approaching. During Social Studies classes, our students will have the opportunity to discuss the history of this day and all that it represents. This would be a great time for you to share, or discuss again, family members or close friends that are either currently serving or have served our country.

On Veterans Day, November 11th, our students will be asked to share about a veteran that they wish to honor. Maybe it is a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt or uncle, or a neighbor. It would be helpful if they have a fact or snippet to share with their peers about this person. For example, “My grandfather served in the Korean War and we love talking about history.” Or, “My sister is currently serving in the Navy to keep us safe. I am so proud of her.”

Your assistance with this would be most appreciated. Please do not worry if you do not have a family member or friend to honor. Your child will get to hear about many veterans in the process and hopefully will have much to share with you.

If you are a veteran, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your service and commitment to the American people. Your service is one that is selfless and of utmost honor. I salute you, but especially will on your day…Veterans Day.
