Is there someone you know who you think the whole school should know about too? Recommend them for our weekly Student Spotlight. Each week we're looking to highlight one student who represents the values of the Wang. Maybe they helped. you in Math class or offered you a shoulder to cry on when you were feeling down. Perhaps this person makes everyone laugh or just puts their needs behind everyone else's all the time. Whatever the reason, we want to know them. Click the button and put your recommendation in. The Newsletter staff will choose one person each week.

Memorial Day

What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. This changed after World War I, and the holiday evolved to honoe American military personnel who died in all wars, including World War II, The Vietnam War, The Korean War and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

For decades, Memorial Day continued to be observed on May 30th. But in 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees. The change went into effect in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.
