St. Thomas More School Welcomes Vets

Veterans Day 2014St. Thomas More Catholic School is hosting their annual Veterans Day Flag Ceremony and class visitation. This annual event lets students meet and honor those who have served our country through the military, past or present.

The event is on the morning of Monday, November 9th.  The program is the same as in years past:

  • Guests arrive before the drop-off line gets too busy.  Please show up  before 7:40 am.   Coffee and refreshments are provided to the veterans.
  • As the community gathers in the school hall by 8 am, veterans are introduced tp everyone to the school community and there is some patriotic music.
  • Everyone proceeds outside for a flag ceremony and a blessing for military service.  Picture taking is done with veterans and students.
  • Veterans  can visit various classrooms where children want to hear about what serving the country is all about.

The morning events conclude about 9:30 am, but some veterans may be asked to stay a little longer some classrooms.  This is a very memorable and pleasant event for children.  They are very interested in veterans, as many have grandparents and parents who have served.
