Veteran’s Day Assembly Tuesday, November 7th, 2016
Veterans Day is Wednesday, November 8th and we have planned two events to honor those who have served. The events are a teaching opportunity for our students to learn through their own participation how to respect and honor our nation’s veterans. In your communication folders, you will find a beautiful invitation to our Veterans Day events to be held on Tuesday, November 7th. Please take the time to invite your veteran neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family members. If you need additional invitations, we will attach the file to the newsletter email for you to print at your convenience. Veterans are invited to bring two guests and will receive name tags confirming their admission. RSVPs to our campus secretaries are due Monday, November 6th. Please RSVP with the number of guests and whether or not wheelchair access or other assistance is needed (No children
under the age of 8 please). We will have very limited parking and seating prior to the receptions and assemblies. If you are bringing Veterans, please arrive on time to your event, but not too early. The assembly will take place from 1:00-2:00 pm on Tuesday, November 7th. Veterans and their guests are invited to attend a reception with refreshments beginning at 12:15pm. The reception and assembly is not for parents of APA students unless you are a guest of a Veteran.
Volunteer Opportunity – If you would like to volunteer (and guarantee yourself a seat in our assembly), please sign up by contacting our wonderful FSO Leaders at, Draper1FSO@apamail.org. We need volunteers to help with reception setup, food preparation, registration and veteran check- in, and cleanup.
Parking – Parking is going to be very limited. We ask that the parking closest to the building be reserved for our Veteran guests- many of whom have difficulty walking long distances. If you need to park at the school, please use the WEST parking lot only.
Classroom Visits – We welcome our Veterans and guests of our APA students to visit the classrooms immediately following the commemorations. This is a wonderful way for our students to introduce them to their class members and for our honored Veterans to share their stories.
We thank you in advance for following our above guidelines. This is a very cherished event here at APA and we are so excited to welcome our Veterans and APA family members.
