In honor of Veterans Day, students and School District employees will be recognizing our nation’s distinguished veterans the week of November 5th. The School District of Palm Beach County will be honoring our veterans in numerous and different ways.
Several schools are inviting veterans to attend ceremonies where they will be honored. Some schools collect for Forgotten Soldiers while others write thank-you letters and deliver them to our local VA Hospital. Most schools invite guest speakers, and many have students interview faculty members or relatives of students who are veterans and showcase them on their in-school TV news programs.
School District employees at the Fulton-Holland Education Services Center and all other off-site administrative offices will honor administrative employees who are veterans at a Veterans Day Ceremony on November 9th. The event will be held at 9:00 a.m. at the flag pole in front of the District’s headquarters building on Forest Hill Blvd. in West Palm Beach.
Students from the Boca Raton Community High School Navy Junior ROTC will present the Colors, students of Jupiter Middle School Band will perform several patriotic selections and Boynton Beach Community High School’s Aunya May will sing the National Anthem and close with “America the Beautiful.”
Superintendent Wayne Gent will speak, read the names, and acknowledge veterans who now serve the students, parents, staff, and School District community. Several veterans will share their experiences and talk about the meaning and importance of Veterans Day.
