Lake Forest School to honor veterans

Lake Forest Elementary School staff and students invite area veterans to be honored at their Celebration of Freedom assembly on Friday, Nov. 9, from 9 to 10 a.m.in the multi-purpose room at 2240 Sailsbury Drive, El Dorado Hills.

Veterans from local Veterans of Foreign Wars posts and friends and relatives of Lake Forest students will be present. A reception will follow the assembly from 10 to 10:30 a.m. This is the school’s twelfth Celebration of Freedom assembly, a touching and eye-opening reminder of the sacrifices made by the country’s veterans.

Parking will be reserved for veterans in the lot on the corner of Kensington Drive and Sailsbury Drive. Students and staff will be wearing red, white and blue, and the multi-purpose room will be decorated with stars that feature the names of family members and friends who have served in the military. The assembly will be led by student representatives, and second-grade students will perform a patriotic musical tribute. Veterans attending the event will be introduced.

The goal of the Veterans Day program is to stimulate discussions in families and to educate students about the role this country’s veterans have played.

“We value the importance of teaching our students about the sacrifices our veterans have made and how they have helped preserve the freedoms we enjoy in the United States today,” said Bruce Peters, Lake Forest school principal.
