This year, District 211 took a different approach to recognize a federal holiday that students usually have off of school. Each District 211 school honored and recognized Veterans Day in their unique ways. Celebrations ranged from assemblies, to musical performances, student speakers, hallway decorations and giving thanks to local veterans.
While the goal of each celebration was to give thanks to veterans both in attendance and those who were unable to come, another main purpose was to teach District 211 students the history and meaning behind the holiday.
