Veteran's Day

Next Wednesday, November 11, we will celebrate Veteran's Day! Explain to your children the meaning of honoring and remember the young men and women who sacrifice their time, talents, and sometime lives to serve in the Armed Forces to protect this country and our freedoms.

This is also a time that your family or your child's classroom can take on a very meaningful service learning project. Suggest to the teacher that the class send holiday cards and messages of cheer to our troops serving over seas. If the teacher is not interested in doing such a project, just make it a family project. There is a Holiday Mail for Heroes Program, run in partnership with the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes. This will be the third annual drive. The kick off date is November 11Th and will continue through December 7Th.

Service learning is a method the teacher can use to teach academic objectives while encouraging their students to do community service, while learning at the same time. It is very important that our children understand that there are many people who are less fortunate then themselves and our children need to see the need around them and around the local and global communities. Children of any age can learn to make cards, write letters, edit, fill out mailing envelopes, learn about the Armed Forces, study about where our troops are currently stationed and why and how they are protecting our freedoms. For more information on the Holiday Mail for Heroes Program go to . Let us not forget about our troops and those who sacrifice their lives everyday this Veteran's Day!
