Celebrating Our Veterans at Escandon Stem Elementary

CELEBRATING our Veterans


Veterans Day is a day we show our Veterans appreciation for their service.  It takes bravery and honor to serve in the U.S. Military. Its a great way to bring home the fact that its not just a day to honor arbitrary people but to honor our friends and neighbors who so selflessly served our country. On Veterans Day, many people choose to honor Veterans in different ways. No matter what you do to celebrate, though, the most important part is respectfully celebrating and honoring the members of the U.S. armed forces.  Here at Jose de Escandon STEM Veterans Day is a great day to teach our students about sacrifice and what it means to serve our country.  Our Second Graders wanted to show our Veterans how much we appreciate them!!!  Students created a Veterans Project to show our Veterans their gratitude for their service.  This project was a perfect opportunity to discuss with students that one of the ways American citizens show their patriotism, or love for one's country, is by serving in the Armed Forces. Students learned about some of the symbols, songs, and pledges that represent our country and have special significance to Veterans.
