Dear Parents,

Mid Rivers Elementary will be celebrating Veterans Day on Thursday, November 11, 2021 by inviting our veterans to participate in a special parade.  This is an important day to remember the men and women who have bravely served, and are currently serving our country to protect our freedom.  Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we won’t be able to celebrate as we have typically done in the past, but we are excited to celebrate and recognize our veterans.

The Parade of Veterans will begin at 10:00 AM.  Veterans should arrive at Mid Rivers Elementary between 9:45 and 10:00 AM.  Staff members will be outside to help direct the cars.  During the parade, veterans will remain in their cars and drive around our back parking lot, while our students share our appreciation for your service to our nation.  

As a special salute, we will have a display of “Our Heroes” on the bulletin board in our front lobby. We are asking you and your child to complete the attached form if your family knows/knew any veterans.  Please fill out the information and attach a picture of your veteran inside the frame.  We recommend you photocopy the picture if it is of any sentimental value.  The hero forms are due as soon as possible so we can put them on display.  The forms will be returned at the end of November.  More forms are available in the office.

Here is the link for our Veterans to RSVP!
