Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
On November 11, we honor the wartime service and sacrifice of men and women in the armed forces. Originally proclaimed Armistice Day in 1919 to commemorate the end of World War I, it was renamed Veterans Day in 1954 to include American veterans of all wars. This Monday, our schools will be closed in honor of Veterans Day.
Veterans Day is a day to recognize and honor the brave men and women, at home and abroad, who have served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces. A day to celebrate our veterans’ invaluable contributions to society and to our safety. May we all take a moment to reflect upon the sacrifices of our veterans and enlisted citizens. May we thank the soldiers, past and present, who we know. May we extend our thoughts and our care to all of those who put our needs and safety above their own.
To our veterans, and your families, we extend our deepest gratitude for your dedicated sacrifice.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out and say hello when you see me around the schools and town, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
