Reflection: Joy Romanticism in Review: Snow Nostalgia - Section 1: Introduction & Welcome: It's Veteran's Day


Today's introduction was supplemented by a special message/announcement, in which the principal shared his respect for veterans, and  asked the students to join him in the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence. The classes spent a few minutes discussing their family in the military and who are veterans, and some students shared plans to enlist post-graduation. The students who are connected with the military had the opportunity to share their pride and, well, joy in this connection.
