Give Thanks to Our Veterans

We have had a very different schedule this week.  A substitute on Monday (ESOL Class for me), Patriotic Sing A Long on Tuesday and No School on Friday.  I have to say this has been an amazing Friday, 65 degrees and gorgeous.  Not our typical fall day in Florida, it's usually a lot warmer.

We honored our Veterans this week with several great activities.  Our patriotic sing a long has to be one of the most loved assemblies at our school.  All Veterans, and serving military families join our entire school in a sing-a-long in our cafeteria.   The finale concludes with all veterans and active duty parents, grandparents and family members coming to the front of the stage to be honored.   We made these cute little hats to wear.  The upper grades wave flags and hold up signs.  Our encore singers wave larger flags and march around the cafeteria.  There isn't a dry eye in the house when we sing I'm Proud to be an American. 

Our fifth graders make this project to honor our military.  The display is placed at the front of our school.  Our little ones are so excited to do this project when they "get bigger" and become fifth graders.
