VAN WAGNEN NEWS
THANK YOU VETERANS
Our Veterans Day assembly was a memorable event. We were honored to welcome over 60 guests who served our country. It was a privilege to share this day with our local Veterans and their families. We are fortunate to have members of the armed forces among our CUES staff. Thank you to these special people for your contributions to our country:
Mr. Nathan Williams, Senior Airman
Mr. Benjamin Learned, Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class
Mrs. Megan Hall, Retired Michigan Army National Guard Major
Thank you to all veterans for serving our country and protecting our freedoms.
On Veterans Day we honor all,
Who answered to a service call.
Soldiers young, and soldiers old,
Fought for freedom, brave and bold.
Some have lived, while others died,
And all of them deserve our pride.
We're proud of all the soldiers who,
Kept thinking of red, white and blue.
They fought for us and all our rights,
They fought through many days and nights.
And though we may not know each name,
We thank ALL veterans just the same.
Parent-Teacher Conferences: November 15th and 16th
Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on November 15th and 16th from 4-7 PM. During conferences, we will plan to share important information regarding your child's academic progress. It is also an important time to learn about resources that will support your child's continued growth.
During this time, the Book Fair will be open and we will also be raffling off a gift basket of Columbia Spiritwear and a Movie Mania Night. Don't forget to buy your raffle ticket!
