Sherwood Celebrates Vets

In recognition of Veterans Day, Sherwood hosted a daylong, schoolwide veterans celebration. Kicking off the event was David Jack’s Spirit of America cultural arts program. The PTA-sponsored program featured a journey through the history of America’s music and introduced students to the writers of the nation’s most famous patriotic songs, including “Yankee Doodle.” Throughout the rest of the day, the staff gave lessons about the true meaning of Veterans Day and encouraged students to honor veterans by having them write letters of thanks.

In preparation for the day, the students researched the different branches of military service and presented what they learned to their classmates.
