Veterans Day Celebration

Our 26th annual Veterans Day celebration, is on Friday, November 11th.

An invitation to attend is extended to all Veterans, as we pay tribute to the sacrifices that all veterans have made. If you know any Veterans, please encourage them to contact us at 989-731-0848, by November 4th, so we can add them to the guest list. We have attached a copy of the Veterans Day letter for more information.

Our students will have an active part in honoring our veterans. Parents are welcome to attend, keeping in mind we will make sure all of our veterans are seated first. If anyone has photos of family members who are serving or have served we would be proud to acknowledge those individuals by putting their photos in our display case as you enter our building. We will take care of the photos and return them promptly. Please drop photos off or send in with your student.
