Teaching Kids To Respect Veterans
At All Saints Catholic School, people young and old come together to find common ground in the country they all love. Each year, the school hosts a Veterans Day program to honor those who have served or are serv-ing and to remember the cost of freedom for us all.
The Veterans Day program at All Saints Catholic School invites veterans and their spouses to visit the class-rooms of grades K-8 and interact with the students all morning long. Veterans are encouraged to share their stories with the students, and both the veterans and the students find it enjoyable and enlightening to learn from one another.
After class, veterans and their spouses are treated to lunch at All Saints. Students whose grandparents are vet-erans love sitting, eating, and talking with them. Following lunch, each grade level entertains the guests with a special act, including songs, dances, poetry readings, and band and choral performances.
While all Veterans Day programs are special, this past year was perhaps the best of all. All Saints was present-ed with a “coin” by soldiers from the Arsenal for Excellence, and it is now proudly featured in the school’s display case.
The Veterans Day program at All Saints Catholic School is a celebration of soldiers’ service. It helps teach children to remember their blessings and to thank veterans for all that they’ve done for our country—a lesson that is perhaps even more important than those they learn in class.
