A Plus: Veterans Day Celebrations

honoring veterans
honoring veterans

From the looks of it, you all were very busy honoring your veterans at your schools. This week, we wanted to give a big A Plus to all the schools who did celebrate Veterans Day. Our Twitter feed, by the way, full of wonderful examples of how you honored our country's vets, so we're gonna share just a few of those tweets right here.

Maribeth Sharkey shared this wall of honor created by the sixth graders at Sherwood Elementary School.

Sherry Mattingly from Hopewell Early Childhood School tweeted, "We were excited to honor and thank "a real hero to celebrate Veterans Day!"

Lindsay Yusko's first grade students at Crestwood Primary School worked on writing letters too.

While Mark Kaminicki shared how the Northwood School Community prepared to welcome veterans for a celebration in their honor. Over at Sterling Morton Elementary, art educator Mrs. Spetrino tweeted, "We are ready to honor our veterans."

And finally, Katie Swing at Boyd E. Smith Elementary shared that her students collected supplies for troop boxes. She wrote, "Look how generous my amazing fifth graders are."

Now, of course we couldn't share all the wonderful Veterans Day tributes we saw, but what's important is that many veterans did get to see them, and we know that warmed their hearts. So here's an A Plus for all the students and the teachers who took the time to recognize those who've served our country on behalf of all of us.
