Veterans Day at Saxe Middle School
Saxe Middle School is holding its Ninth Annual Veterans Appreciation Day today, Friday, November 11, 2016. The day will be framed by the Essential Questions:
· How does the past affect the present?
· How does an individual impact a global community?
Saxe Middle School students will participate the Saxe Middle School Ninth Annual Veterans Appreciation Day.
Music teachers, Chris Coulter, Janet Rosen and Katie Dorfman, will be conducting Saxe band and orchestra students in performing a welcoming medley of patriotic songs in the front lobby.
John Calitri, Sergeant, U.S. Army (1965-67), will be conducting a special flag folding ceremony as part of the day’s educational activities.
Saxe students will be able to make thank you cards that will be delivered to the West Haven Veterans Hospital and the New Canaan Veteran Homebound Human Services Division.
Students will serve as escorts for the visiting veterans.
This Veterans Day at Saxe Middle will be a day to remember because all of the students will have an opportunity to hear history first hand from thirty visiting veterans.
This is a day for the Saxe Learning Community to take the time to honor those heroes who have sacrificed so much for the United States. This program is planned in conjunction with the Saxe Library Media Center.
Saxe Library Media Specialists, Monica Sheeha and Mona Biondi have once again, gone "above and beyond" to coordinate this event!
