The Austin Elementary third grade class is proud to be honoring our veterans on Wednesday, November 11. We would like to invite you to bring your family, friends, and especially the veterans in your life so that we may show our appreciation to them through song and written thoughts.

We will be performing two identical Veteran’s Day programs on Wednesday: one in the morning at 9:00, and the other in the afternoon at 1:45. Each performance will last about 30 minutes. You and your family are welcome to attend either or both of these performances.

For these special performances, please have your third grader wear blue jeans (or a blue jeans skirt, if you prefer) with a red, white or blue shirt (or a combination of the three colors). The idea is to have a “patriotic” appearance. This will serve as our “uniform” for the special event.

We will be asking students to bring photos of the special veterans in their lives so that we may put them on our “Wall of Honor” in the school hallway. We will also be creating a slideshow from these photos to present during our Veteran’s Day Program on November 11. The deadline to turn in photos is October 27th, and we will be returning the photos when we take down the Wall of Honor. If it is more convenient to email photos, please send photos to Kelly Lohrding at

If you have any concerns or questions about this special Veteran’s Day event, please email me at I will address your concerns as timely as possible.

Hoping to see you on Wednesday, November 11th!
