Chester Elementary School
November 13, 2023 / Honoring Achievement!
Dear CES Family,
It's a Veteran's Day weekend. This last Monday we took some time at our Monday Morning Meeting (you're always invited, btw) to tell our students a bit about this holiday and the meaning of it. It fits so very well with this month's character trait of "gratitude." Synonymous with the meaning of "thankfulness" in many ways, the definition of gratitude also includes the idea of being ready to show appreciation for, and to return, kindness. How appropriate for Veterans Day. We also thanked one of our staff members, Ms. Chelsie Rockwell, for her service to our country in the Air Force.
To those of our parents who are military veterans, we're grateful for you and thank you as well. We live in an amazing country! Know how much you are appreciated.
