D211 Post: District 211 Schools Mark Veterans Day
All schools in District 211 have unique ways of marking Veterans Day every year. From school-wide assemblies to veteran breakfasts and classroom presentations, each school takes time to thank and learn from those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
With the District currently operating in a hybrid education model as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, social studies teachers took a new approach to mark the day. Some of the elements of annual celebration remained the same, such as decorating the school and recognizing alumni veterans, teachers used the hybrid teaching environment to teach students about aspects of the holiday’s origin and inviting students to share their family ties to the military.
