Veterans Day 2017

In the days leading up to Friday, November 10th, Principal Keera Dwulit e-mailed all high schools about the following:

Students, 
 
This Friday we will be honoring Veterans Day by carrying the American flag all day from 7:30am until 3:00pm.  It will start with a short opening ceremony at the flag pole at 8:05 am and then students will take turns carrying the flag around the building continuously in 10 minute segments.  Rain or shine and/or cold…plan accordingly!
 
Please sign up on the form below if you want to be part of this day long event.  With the volume of students, please choose one spot initially and then there may be the opportunity to add more.  
 
There may/will be many students that sign up in one spot – that is anticipated and welcomed!   
 
Let me know if there are any concerns or questions. 
 
Thanks for your participation and support of this important day! 
Below are a few photos from throughout the day, including Dwulit in her Army uniform, as well as teachers and students carrying the flag throughout the day.
