Friday, November 10th, 2017 Veteran’s Parade and Ceremony
LES students are encouraged to invite a Veteran (a family member, close family friend, or neighbor) as their special guest to participate in this event honoring our local veterans. The event will include light refreshments, a school-wide parade, and a ceremony.
If your child is able to bring a Veteran to our celebration, please fill out the form located at the bottom of this letter. You can cut the bottom form off and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher. Please return it by Friday, November 3rd. Guests should plan to arrive at LES by 7:40 AM.
LES will also create a “Wall of Honor” to display in our school to celebrate our Veterans and soldiers who cannot be with us on this Veterans Day Celebration. In order for us to create our “Wall of Honor,” please get a “Wall of Honor” form from the office, complete it, and return it by Friday, November 3rd. Please include a copy of a photo (not original) and put your student’s name on the back of the photo.
The photo will be returned to you after Veterans Day.
Please cut, fill out, and return the below portion of this letter.
