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 is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.
Since we weren’t able to have a celebration in person, our high students and staff put together a virtual celebration. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/socBtzCdFKM
To all Veterans, I thank you for your service to our country and to our community. 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 virtual program together. Job well done…thank you!
Brian Jaeger, Superintendent
