Lincoln Public Schools staff, students to honor Veterans Day 2018

Lincoln Public Schools is celebrating and saluting Veterans Day in schools and classrooms across the school district, recognizing and honoring our community’s veterans with days filled with a wide variety of events and activities. 

Veterans Day officially falls on Sunday, Nov. 11, so LPS elementary, middle and high schools are paying tribute to our veterans at various times throughout mid-November as patriotism fills the air. 

Children are creating videos of gratitude, writing thank-you letters to veterans, singing songs and making speeches – all to honor those who have served in the armed forces. 

Classrooms are asking veterans to visit as guest speakers, interviewing them for writing assignments. 

Schools are holding patriotic assemblies, inviting veterans for lunch, hosting special concerts – initiatives focused on saying thank you to veterans for their sacrifice and service.  

Lincoln Public Schools will collect stories, photos and video of Veterans Day 2018.  Stay tuned.
