Highland Elementary Students Honor Area Veterans Through Art & Parade
In honor of the upcoming Veteran's Day weekend, students at Highland Elementary created artwork to celebrate community members that have served in the military.
Veterans Day is happening on Friday, November 11th, 2022. It's important to honor our area veterans and teach students about them. Whether they attend a parade, spend time with a veteran, or learn about their service and sacrifice, there are many ways students can become connected to a veteran. That's exactly what preschool students at Highland Elementary School in Owensboro did. They honored veterans through fun artwork.
HISTORY OF VETERANS DAY
According to Military.com, Veterans Day is a time to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.
This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country's service and was initially called Armistice Day. It fell on November 11th because that's the anniversary of the Armistice signing that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to "Veterans Day" in order to account for all veterans of all wars.
We celebrate and honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
HIGHLAND ELEMENTARY PRESCHOOLERS CELEBRATE VETERANS
How do you teach young preschoolers about Veterans Day? Through art, of course! Mrs. Sarah Tennant brought her students together to celebrate those who've proudly served our country. It's a great way to teach students about the men and women who serve in the military and why it's important to thank them for their service. This is a job well done!
