2017 Veterans Day

Friday, November 10th is Veterans Day, and KES students, teachers, staff and parents would like to invite all men and women who are currently serving or who have served in the Armed Forces to join us for an assembly on Friday, Nov. 10th from 8:30-9:30 AM .  This annual event is special for our school as we honor, recognize and celebrate all those who have made a difference in our lives.  If you are a veteran and are able to attend our assembly, then we ask that you complete a registration form  https://goo.gl/forms/y0KVH2HZa2QesYb83 .  Please register as soon as possible but no later than Wed, November 8th. During the assembly each guest veteran will be introduced and asked to stand to be recognized.  Guest veterans are encouraged, but not required, to wear their uniforms for the assembly.  KES students and staff will be wearing red, white and blue.  All veteran guests will have reserved seating and sit with their KES student.  All veterans should report to the front foyer of the school to check in before the assembly.  Our assembly will begin promptly at 8:30 AM.

In addition to recognizing guest veterans during our assembly, our school will participate in two other experiences to honor and support our veterans.  First, we will create a visual representation in our school’s hallway to honor men and women who have served our country in the past or who are currently serving but may not be able to attend our assembly. Please download and print this template for each veteran you would like to honor. Second, our KES community will partner with Blue Star Families and the USO to collect items to be sent to our deployed troops.  Please look for information forthcoming in Tuesday orange folders.
