Happy Veterans Day! Every year our 5th grade students host a Veterans Day program & reception for our parish/school community. They are unable to hold the event this year due to the pandemic, but instead are leading our school Veterans Day observance by sharing their essays about veterans and creating Thank You cards to share with local veterans. The 6th grade computer class also designed cards, and our lessons and bulletin boards reflect our gratitude to those who served. God bless our veterans!
