FDES Veterans Day

Veterans Day

Third grade students at FDES observed Veterans Day on November 11, 2021 with some special activities at school.  The students decorated red, white, and blue stars with the names of people who had served in the military, including FDES Staff and family members of staff and students.  The stars were hung in the hallway with a banner of thanks. 

The students also performed a play based on the book America's White Table written by Margot Theis Raven.  The white table is a symbol to remmber service members fallen, missing or held captive.  The students also sang My Country Tis of Thee as part of their performance.

A special thank you to Mrs. Cusick who organized this event.
