Our DPS Weekly: Students Honor Veterans

Nov. 12, 2016

Students Honor Veterans in School Celebrations Across Denver

Students in schools across Denver participated in celebrations of Veterans Day. Examples include Brown International Academy, where students invited active and retired members of the armed services to an assembly that included students performing patriotic songs and North High School students assisting with the presentation of colors and a history of why Veterans Day is celebrated.

At Florida Pitt Waller, Principal Charles Babb, also known at Lt. Col. Babb for his 21 years of active service, hosted an assembly so students could learn about the meaning of the American flag from a veteran who is a Math Fellow at the school. In addition, they honored fallen soldiers.

And at Stedman Elementary, the music teacher is Clint Moore, a veteran of Operation Inherent Resolve and an active member of the Colorado Army National Guard, where he serves as a helicopter pilot. He led choir students in performing songs from the musical, “We Honor the Brave,” in two concerts for the school and community. Watch the DPS Features video on Facebook here.
