Veteran's DayOne of our 602 students asked if we could do something special for her mom’s National Guard unit who is stationed in Iraq. We spent time on Veterans Day learning about the history of the holiday, then wrote and decorated notes of gratitude that this student’s family will send on our behalf. Our notes will hopefully help encourage the 35 members of that unit, and convey our gratitude for their service. This comes on the heels of our most recent unit looking at government systems around the world, and gave us time to reflect on just how fortunate we are to live in a free nation upheld by heroes abroad and here at home.
