Letter from the Principals

This month we are proud to continue our annual tradition of giving thanks to our Veterans and active duty service members on Veterans Day, also known as Armistice Day. Our student council members identify and invite local veterans and active service members to a breakfast and assembly to thank them for their service to our country. During the assembly, our student color guard presents the American Flag to the student body and veterans, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Women’s Auxiliary will perform a flag ceremony, and our very own Dos Rios students will perform a music selection for the group of veterans. Veterans are able to share their experience and insights with our students, both during the assembly and in smaller classroom groups afterward, to help students better understand the concept of service to community and country.

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"

As we enter this season of giving, we honor those who have served our country to protect the freedoms we enjoy. We are in your debt. And for their part, we want to thank The Great Outdoors RV Co. and The Human Bean for their financial support of this veterans' breakfast.
