11 Nov Veterans Day
Today, November 11, Thomas Edison EnergySmart Charter School honored Veteran’s Day with two assemblies. The elementary school students in Grade K through 6 gathered in the Gym with special guest, Captain Alex Medeiros. Representatives in each class shared their appreciation by presenting cards, poems, and writings that they had worked on in class. Captain Medeiros shared some of his experiences in the military, as well as answered questions from the students about his time in the US Army.
Middle and High School students gathered in the Learning Center with three honored guests: Officer Jose Jamie, Sgt. Smart, and Sgt. First Class Larabina. Students showed their appreciation through poetry, speeches, and songs. In addition students held a Q & A where the Veterans laughed about their fondest memories serving as well as shared their insights on why and how they joined the military. TEECS is always thankful for our brave men and women who serve our country, and today was a great opportunity to show that appreciation.
