Honoring Veteran's Day

Tina Martinez had her classes study the poem, "In Flanders Fields." The students then talked about the origin of Veterans Day, the initial celebration, and how the holiday is observed today.

"Students talked about the war in Iraq and without being pro or against the war, we came to the conclusion that those who are serving deserve our respect," Martinez said. "So, we made red poppies to either wear in honor of Veterans Day or to give to a veteran. The students also wrote letters to these future veterans."

Mrs. Martinez's students wrote some letters specifically to family members or family friends who are serving in the military. Other letters will be sent to a unit serving in Iraq.
