Wall of Honor
Spring Canyon Middle School students and teachers would like to honor the veterans in our lives through a wall of honor. Please use black ink to fill in the brick below for any special veteran or serviceperson (alive or deceased). The bricks will be used to build a wall of honor to honor our veterans.
Pictures (not required) may be attached and will not be returned. They will be put together with other “bricks.” Please do not send your only copy of a picture. Please use a separate piece of paper for each veteran (not front – back).
To be included in the Wall of Honor, please return the brick by November 8 to the front office. We are also encouraging students to participate in our Veteran's Day Art Contest. See info below.
