CALLING ON ALL VETERANS!!!!!!


Do you know a local veteran? The 7th grade social studies teachers need your help!

This year, we are inviting Lexington County veterans (or those that are actively serving) to our campus to interview about their lives, service, and the choice they made to serve/help others. We plan to preserve the veteran stories and feature them in a magazine and documentary designed by the students. This will be a wonderful experience not only to help our students grow into effective communicators, but also to preserve the history of their bravery and service to our country. We ask that anyone that knows of a local veteran that would like to be interviewed by our students to please fill out the google form link https://goo.gl/forms/vvUvNk1qgpo6mOU43. Thank you!
