Classrooms at WCE did a variety of activities to build student capacity with our Veterans. These activities helped them make connections with our families and community and give back to our local Veterans. Many of our students wrote letters to our Local Veterans. Mrs. Hunt's class wrote letters to the National Veterans Museum that has a program to distribute them. Her students also did an analysis of the poem "In Flanders Field. Please take the time to talk to your child about how they honored Veterans in their class! If you have not already, please take a few minutes to watch our slideshow that honors military families that are close to our heart.
