NOVEMBER A/B DAY SCHEDULE
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
Hello Corporate Landing Middle School Community,
This week we celebrate our American Veterans and those who served in our military. We are all so grateful for everything our current military and veterans have done for our freedom and our country.
Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.
This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country's service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to "Veterans Day" in order to account for all veterans in all wars. (https://www.military.com/veterans-day)
Have an awesome day,
We are CLMS Jets and we are family!
