As Veterans Day approaches, it is important to take time to acknowledge the meaning of this national holiday. D’Evelyn strives to prepare students for roles as active, informed citizens who celebrate the strengths of our nation. To celebrate our patriotism we emphasize the unique values, freedoms, and liberties essential to the United States and can think of no better group of heroes who represent the importance of these lofty ideals than the men and women who have unselfishly served our nation. Our veterans and active duty service members sacrifice tremendously giving up their safety, comforts of home, friends, and family, and at times their lives to model true service, heroism, and honor. By their selfless service, they show us that the democratic ideals upon which our country was founded and the freedom which the United States personifies are worth fighting to protect. We find it imperative that we thank these men and women for their self-sacrifice and service to our country. Thus, we are excited to celebrate our veterans and their families at D’Evelyn’s Veterans Day Tribute Event on November 11th. Please see the below information for more details:
We invite all veterans and active service members to join us at 1:20 pm in the cafeteria for snacks and refreshments before the tribute.
