Giving Meaning to Veterans Day

Standing on a stage, speaking into a microphone, Bayville Elementary School students showed their own kind of bravery as they asked questions of visiting veterans, whose answers to those questions demonstrated the bravery that men and women exhibited while in the military.

The fifth graders in Kelley Price’s class and second graders in Dani Schatz’s class paired up to learn more about veterans in honor of Veterans Day. The two classes have been working together, focusing on themes each month. This month’s theme of gratitude was the perfect platform for thanking veterans for their service to our country.

The students wanted to know about the most challenging experiences and the most rewarding ones that the six veterans on stage had while serving our country. They learned that being away from their families was hard and that they had to do whatever they were told without asking why. The veterans each shared their thoughts of their time in the military and reminded the students that they should appreciate the freedoms that they have living in the United States, because many men and women sacrificed their lives to give them such freedoms. The veterans were gifted handmade thank-you cards, reminding them that the students do indeed appreciate their sacrifices.

The Bayville students were not the only ones in the district recognizing Veterans Day. Ann MacArthur Primary School kindergartners used crayons and colored pencils to create red, white and blue hearts, which were all joined together on a beautiful banner to hang outside the school.

At the high school, senior Trinity Benstock, representing the History Club, read a piece honoring veterans over the loudspeaker during morning announcements. The high school’s Back the Blue Club laid flowers at the flagpole and had a moment of silence in honor of all veterans. Eighth graders at Locust Valley Middle School wrote letters to soldiers based in the United States and abroad. Other similar activities took place in classrooms across the district.

The Locust Valley school community thanks all veterans for their service to our country!

Thanks to a collaboration with the Bayville and Locust Valley Fire Departments, elementary students across the district can watch a fire safety video that reinforces lessons taught in the classrooms. Firefighters from both departments joined together to share important messages. The district is thankful to them for providing this valuable video.
