Veterans Day is a holiday that certainly presents a great teaching moment. Several MMS classrooms spent time last week discussing what Veterans Day is and what it means to honor those who have served our country.
One of our own MMS staff members, Mr. Roger Gonzalez, is a U.S. Army Veteran. Some of our Lower Elementary students wanted to specifically recognize him on such a special week. They did so by dressing in red, white and blue, displaying American flags, writing special letters to him and expressing their thanks:
Mr. Gonzalez showed the students his medals and talked about his experiences. All of us at MMS would like to thank Mr. Gonzalez, and all of our Nations' Veterans, for serving in our military and for the tremendous sacrifices they have made to protect our freedom.
