Dear Parents and Guardians,
On November 9th, at 9:15am and 2:00pm, Shoemaker School will be celebrating Veterans Day. On this occasion, we are holding our monthly “Mustang Meeting” and having two special ceremonies involving many different ways to help us remember and honor those who are serving in the military, or who have served in the past. All of the grades have a special part in this ceremony. First, we will be having a show displaying the talents of the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders from 9:15-10:00 am. We will then have another show from 2:00-3:00pm to display the talents of the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. You are welcome to come to both shows or just to choose one. Your child will be able to join your vet for the presentation time they are able to attend. This is regardless of what grade level is presenting at that time. We realize that the students of Shoemaker School may have some veterans in their families, and we would love for these special family members to come to school for one of the assemblies. In order to ensure that we have the appropriate space to accommodate our visitors, we ask that you fill out the bottom of this form and return it to your child’s teacher no later than Monday, 11/5. You can also RSVP Mr. Trexler at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach or cut and paste the information in the form below. If you do not wish to attend the ceremony, you do not have to return the form or RSVP.
As years in the past, we would like to have a slideshow presentation that includes pictures of our Shoemaker veterans. This would include family pictures, old military pictures and anything you can find that represents your soldier. We believe by putting a face to the names shown so the Shoemaker family will be able to better recognize the sacrifice these brave soldiers have made.
If you are interested in having your soldier represented in the slide presentation this year, please email Greg Trexler (email@example.com). Once he has received an email, he will share the slide presentation to a Google Drive address of your choosing. You will need to log on to Google Drive using your or your child’s user ID and password. He will send you instructions on how to make your Google slide for your soldier. All you need to do is input the information on the template. He will take care of the rest. Please keep it to one slide per veteran. We love our Vets’ Day program, but we would like to keep the program less than 3 hours.

Please complete this form and return it to your child’s teacher no later than Monday, November 5th. Thank you!
