Every year to celebrate Veterans Day, the district’s schools commemorate the day through various activities with the students and their families.
This year, Conway held its Veterans Foodbank Drive, where the students collected cans and personal items and then created cards, as well—all to be delivered to the VA Hospital.
Reed commemorated the day with its Veterans Day Service Learning Project, where the students collected both food items and monetary donations.
Spoede students created their Veterans Day projects, where the they hung posters of their family members who had been in the armed service. All of the students’ veteran family members were invited to the assembly in order to honor them, and everyone wore red, white and blue to mark the occasion. See photos of their assembly below!
At the high school, two Ladue Broadcast Technology students, Grace Hensley and Marilyn Lercel, produced video interviews for Educate.Today’s “Celebrating Military Families and Military Service”program. Marilyn interviewed Practical Arts teacher and Marine veteran Hank Harrison about his experiences in the Marine Corps. Grace interviewed Navy veteran and Ladue community member John Boley and his wife about his time in the military and their time as a couple, during the Cold War and beginning of the Vietnam War.
