Join us in Honoring our Veterans 
As you know, many government offices, banks, and schools will be closed on Monday, November 12 in observance of Veterans Day. However, District 146 schools will be in session.

We see the Veterans Day holiday as an opportunity to teach our students why we have a day to honor Veterans. The intention is for students to interpret Veterans Day as a time for reflection and thanks rather than a day off of school.

Throughout the day, our students and staff reflect on the sacrifices made by Veterans and current service members. Each school will be doing something special on that Monday. Some will have ceremonies, some will display a Missing Man Table, and some will have in-class discussions. All schools, however, will stress the importance of thanking our Veterans.

Each year, Central Middle School invites Veterans who are family members of students and staff to a ceremony at the school. All CMS students attend the ceremony. The band and chorus perform, students hand out small tokens of appreciation, and a guest speaker reminds us why we are there. 

I invite you to view the Veterans Day Ceremony as we stream it live at facebook.com/CMSTwisters. The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, November 12. A video of the ceremony will remain on the Facebook page afterwards. We hope you can join our students and staff as we honor our Veterans.
