On Oct. 11, Tara Moore's This Day in History class was visited by Ms. A. Marcanotos, a U.S. Army Reservist, and mother of eighth grade student Sabrina Singh.

“She came to talk about her experience being in the US Army, as both a current reservist and as a veteran of the war in Iraq,” explained Moore. “Her visit culminated the unit about this day in history, November 11th, which was the end of combat during World War I and later became acknowledged as Veterans Day.”

Students participated in a school-wide poster contest to raise awareness about Veterans Day and to thank veterans for their service.
