Honoring Our Veterans During Patriotism Week
2021 Intermediate School Patriotism Week Video:
Our Intermediate School students will be participating in Patriotism Week from November 8-12 this year. This annual week-long celebration is sponsored by our Intermediate School Improvement Team. In years past we have ended the week with an assembly during which we recognize family members of our students and staff members who are veterans or who are currently serving in a branch of the Armed Forces. Unfortunately we will not be able to hold our in-person assembly due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, we would still like to honor these family members by recognizing them in a video that can be shared with our school community.
If your child has a family member who is a veteran or who is currently serving in the Armed Forces, we would like to include him or her in this video recognition. Students are welcome to create their own slide to put in our slideshow celebrating their family member’s service, or supply us with the information below and we can create a slide for you if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Your child’s name
Name of the veteran or active duty service member
His or her relationship to your child
Military Branch the he or she served in (or is currently serving in)
If possible, please include a picture for our presentation along with the email
We will have more information about our Patriotism Week celebration as we get closer to November 8.
