Veteran's Day Celebration

Veteran Guest Speakers: Nov. 11th

At Gayman Elementary School, we believe in honoring the men and women who serve, and have served, in our military. Their dedication to this country is valued and appreciated!


To mark this special day, we are hosting "Veteran Class Speakers". Any veteran, or someone currently serving in the military, is invited to speak to a class. The time of the presentation will be determined by the teacher and speaker.


A 20-minute presentation would include:

  • A description of your military job/responsibilities
  • A favorite memory from your service
  • Questions from the students


Ideally, we need 20 veterans. NOTE: While we will make every effort to match you with your child's (grandchild's) class, you may be speaking to a different class. Email Jennifer Costello at jcostello@cbsd.org, if you are interested before November 1st.


To all of our veterans - thank you for your service!

Flags on the Lawn

We invite our community to share the names of their military friends and family. For every name shared, a flag will be placed on the Gayman lawn to honor that individual. Thank you!


Submit the veteran's name here.
