Thank-A-Veteran 2014

Team Hero is so proud of our students for their participation in the Thank-A-Veteran Event.  Their respectful behavior and intelligent dialogue with the visiting veterans earned them many compliments from the veterans, their family members, school staff and administrators.  

On November 6th and 7th, 2014, the teachers and seventh grade students of Team Hero hosted a special event honoring men and women who have served our country in the armed forces and we will be sharing what we learned in a special history project.  Faculty members and students displayed artifacts from family members that have served in the military.  Students interviewed veterans from the local VFW in addition to other veterans from the community, and recorded their experiences.  In the end, we hope the event instills in our students the importance of showing gratitude and paying respect to the brave men and women who have made tremendous sacrifices in protecting our freedom and our way of life.
