Thank You Veterans!!
Although pleasant weather is not usually ones first thought when November starts, I must admit that it is still one of my favorite months. It seems to be coincidental that Thanksgiving and Veterans Day both occur during November but in my opinion I think it is perfectly appropriate. Since we have started conducting our formal Veterans Day assembly, November 11 is one of the days that I most look forward to. One of the recognitions that we do at our assembly is to ask every student and staff member who has had a family member serve in our nation’s military to stand. It is a powerful image to see so many individuals standing to represent the pride and sacrifice of their family members.
It is a great opportunity for our students to understand how important it is that we recognize and thank our veterans for their service that permits us the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms we have as American citizens.
Please be sure to encourage any and all veterans that you know to join us at AOHS for our annual Veterans Day Assembly on November 11, 2015. Our assembly will begin at approximately 8:15 AM.
Additionally, please make a point to seek out the veterans that you know and tell them how much we appreciate them!
