October 27-31

Dear Parents,

Each year the Trailblazer team hosts a Veterans Day Celebration.  We provide breakfast and entertainment for local veterans. This year, November 11th falls on a Tuesday. We will have our ceremony in the Stanton Middle School auditeria from 8:00-9:30am.

The celebration will include students performing patriotic music and poetry, as well as serving breakfast to veterans and talking with them about their service to our country.

To make this event a success, we need your help. We need breakfast foods and drinks, paper plates, plastic silverware, napkins, and volunteers to monitor and serve food. All breakfast-related food and drink items are welcome donations.

A form was given to students to take home two weeks ago. If you are able to donate, please complete this form and send back with your student.

Thank you,

The Trailblazers
