Special people in our lives

This week the class learned about some very special people in our lives- OUR VETERANS.  We learned that November 11 is Veterans Day. On this day, Americans honor veterans—former members of the U.S. armed services.  Parades and ceremonies are held across the nation to recognize all the men and women who have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. Some people gather to raise the American flag and sing the national anthem.  Our learning became EXTRA special with the arrival of some very special guests to the classroom!  We met Ms. Jen, a veteran of the Air Force, Mr. Paul, a veteran of the Army, Mr. Bill, a veteran of the Marines and Mr. Joe, a veteran of the Navy.  They shared their experiences when they served our country.  They explained that sometimes they were scared and missed their families, but they were ALWAYS proud to serve and protect our country.  We are so lucky to have our veterans that helped to keep us safe.  We will not forget them, their work and their love.
