On Friday, November 8th, at 9:00 AM, Cornwall Terrace Elementary students and staff will honor our local Veterans in celebration of Veterans Day 2019. We will present a short assembly in the auditorium, followed by a reception.
In order to make this event a success, we would like to have the names and addresses of Veterans in your family who would be available and interested in attending this celebration with us. A family friend who is a Veteran is also welcome to attend. A Veteran is any type of military personnel who has or is currently serving our country in any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. Due to the limited space in our facility, we are only able to accommodate your Veteran at this assembly. Because of restriction, we are exploring the possibility of recording this event to provide the opportunity for other family members to see as well. If your Veteran is unable to drive and/or needs assistance, please let us know. We are happy to make provisions.
If you know a Veteran who would be available to attend, please complete and return the bottom portion of the letter, which you will find in your child’s backpack shortly. We will need this form by Wednesday, October 9th. Also, if possible, please include a photograph of your Veteran in uniform. These photographs will be returned to your child, so be sure to write their name on the back. Digital photographs may be emailed to Mrs. VanOstenbridge at email@example.com.
Cornwall Terrace is very excited about this event as our students wish to acknowledge the devotion and sacrifice these men and women have given to our country. Thank you in advance for your assistance with this special assembly.
