Today, in honor of the men and women who have served our country, lower school students participated in various programs.
Students in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade had special centers all focusing on honoring and thanking our veterans. The centers began with a visit from Akiba’s Middle School math teacher, Ms. Mareth, dressed in her Air Force uniform. We thank her for her service to the United States.
Students then transitioned between their learning four centers:
- Patriotic music including “America (My Country ‘Tis of Thee)” and “Deep in the Heart of Texas”
- Writing thank you cards to the Texas State Veterans Home in Bonham
- Brainstorming 101 Ways to Thank a Veteran
- Honoring our flag: Learning how to properly fold an American Flag and the meaning behind it
