Veterans Day Celebration | Grades 2-12
November 9, 2018 @ 8:15 am - 10:25 am
Veterans Day Celebration is Friday, Nov. 9
I am excited to announce the schedule for our annual Veterans Day Celebration. Part of the Eagle Ridge Academy vision statement is for our students to appreciate the United States of America and her unique role in the world. We want our students to understand what it means to be a Veteran and to honor the selfless sacrifice that so many men and women have made for our freedoms. The celebration includes a musical performance from our students, a flag ceremony, recognition of Veterans in attendance, and speeches given in honor of the occasion.
See the assembly time for each grade level below:
- Grades 2-3: 8:15-8:40
- Grades 4-5: 8:50-9:15
- Grades 6-8: 9:25-9:50
- Grades 9-12: 10:00-10:25
Please note that Kindergarten and first grade will not take part in the assemblies this year. They will participate in other activities to honor veterans in their classrooms.
Be Involved in the Celebration!
