Help us recognize those who serve our country! To honor Skinner North family members who have served in the military or are still in active duty, we are inviting Skinner families and teachers to contribute to our Veterans Day Honorary Flag. Keep an eye out for white paper stars being sent home later this week.
If you have a military family member you’d like to recognize, please CUT & FILL OUT the white paper star with your loved ones:
Branch in the military
Any other information you’d like to share (where they’re stationed, a picture of them in uniform, etc.)
Who they are related to at Skinner North
Send your completed star back to school with your student or drop it off in the Parent Room. All returned stars will be proudly displayed on our Veterans Day Honorary Flag.
For our Veterans Tribute Week, all students will also be participating in a letter writing project for Honor Flight Chicago (honorflightchicago.org) which we will need a parent volunteer to help with. A volunteer request will be sent out early next week. Additionally, students will also get the unique opportunity to hear speakers talk from the military about their experiences serving our country.
We’re hoping that all these activities will help our Skinner North students better understand the meaning & importance of Veterans Day.
