Veterans Day: We Remember.


This is my dad.  He is a Veteran.  His name is George Washington and he served his Country.  I think that days like we had on Friday at East Chester take on a particularly special meaning when someone you know and love has served.  We remember.

This is our principal Mrs. Kim and our assistant principal Mrs. Spring who believe that school is about growing academically as well as growing as a person.  This is why we are able to have a Veterans Day program.  Our administration serves the whole child.  We remember.



  These are the students who participated in the Veterans Day program.  Some of them had speaking parts, all of them sang 'You're A Grand Old Flag', and all of them stood tall as they said the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States Flag.  We Remember.
 












These are just some of the Veterans who took time out of their day to come to East Chester and allow us to honor them for their service to our Country.  We are thankful to each man and woman who have served.  You are the reason we have the freedom to learn at East Chester.  We remember.
  
            
                            
This is the future of America.  At East Chester, we believe it is our duty to empower the future.  Our future are these students.  We are blessed to teach in a Nation that believes in the future.  We remember the past so that we can build a better future.  We remember.


To the wonderful 3rd graders at East Chester, what do you remember about Veterans Day?  Write your memories in the comment spaces below!  See you at the edge!

  14. I remember our recent Veterans Day Program it seems it was only Friday. (because it was)What I remember most is when it was my turn to speak.I remember trembling walking up to the microphone to say my lines. I also remember all the people and Veterans staring at me.I was scared out of my shorts!Wait,I wasn't wearing shorts.I mean pants!I said my lines and then I saw my mom she was so happy I saw her crying I don't know if she was happy or sad.Maybe it was because I messed up. That is what I remember about the Veterans Day Program. Alex Vires

  15. I remember. I remember listening to 104 3rd graders sing 'You're a Grand Old Flag' with great spirit and emotion. I remember fantastic speakers. I remember 3rd grade teachers smiling proudly at their 3rd graders. I remember tears of joy. I remember proud faces of veterans. I remember a day of greatness. This is what I remember about our East Chester Veterans Day! Mrs. Belinda
