|To every thing, there is a season . . .|
And a time to every purpose . . . It was Veterans Day for us on Monday, time set aside to celebrate the courage and bravery of our military heroes and honor and thank them for their service and sacrifice.
So that's what our first graders took the time to do!
They studied the branches of the military, they researched who the Veterans in their circle of family and friends are, they learned Patriotic Songs to perform for them, and they wrote them notes of thanks. Then we invited them to spend the afternoon with us so that we could celebrate their heroism.
|A time to salute . . .|
|A time to shine . . .|
And a time to sing!
|A time to congregate . . .|
A time to connect with comrades . . .
|And a time to cry, for the soldier who isn't yet |
|A time to tell their tales . . .|
|A time to listen and learn . . .|
|And a time to thank!|
|A time to remember . . .|
|A time to reflect . . .|
|And a time to recognize.|
