Veterans Day!

Hello everyone,

To understand Veterans Day you have to go back in history to 1918.  On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the first World War came to an end.  It became known as “Armistice Day”. In 1954, President Eisenhower changed the name from “Armistice Day” to “Veterans Day”.  Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

It was so wonderful to see so many Veterans at our high school today for our Veterans Day program.  To all those in attendance and for those Veterans that could not make it, I thank you for your service to our country and to our community.  Each of you represents what is best about this country and you inspire me to be the best person that I can be, every day. To all the men and women out there who are on active duty in the armed forces….I also thank you for your service and appreciate all you do each day.

A special thank you to Todd Hospodarsky and the high school students and staff that put this program together.  It was a job well done…thank you!  The WWII memorial on display in our lobby will be a point of pride in our community for years to come.

Brian Jaeger, Superintendent
