Samuel Kennedy Elementary School invited military veterans and the communities that support all branches of the U.S. Military, to attend a Veterans Day celebration on Friday, November 8, 2019. The event honored local military veterans with a student-led celebration where Samuel Kennedy Elementary fourth, fifth and sixth graders sang “God Bless the USA,” “Heroes Song” and “Thank You, Soldiers”.
The Veterans Day celebration at Samuel Kennedy Elementary aimed to instill how important veterans are to the local community. Their past military service and current civil contributions continue to protect and support the progress of the foundational freedoms of the United States of America.
Many Samuel Kennedy Elementary faculty and student body members have a connection to the military and it is important to honor these ties to the local community. Samuel Kennedy Elementary, located within Elk Grove Unified School District, provided a unique and wonderful educational experience for members of the community by teaching about American history and supporting local military veterans.
Honoring our country’s military veterans teaches children about important values and offers a hands-on history lesson for student attendees and participants. All Samuel Kennedy Elementary School students and staff were invited to participate in the school’s Veterans Day celebration. The pride in being a “Kennedy Cougar” was exhibited by the students as they continue to grow and learn.
