Veterans Day Celebration

Our Veterans Day Celebration is coming up in a few weeks and we want to create a Gallery of Honor for the day of our Veterans Day Celebration, filled with photos of our veterans (of all nations) and service men and women still serving in our armed forces. We could use your help with this! If you could bring to the school or send by your young Dragon a photo of the veteran(s) in your family and/or a photo of any service men or women in your family or neighborhood still serving today, we promise to take good care of the photo and will display it on November 11th for all of our students and staff to see throughout this day. Photos should be sent to Ashley Starr, DeSana assistant principal, no later than Friday, November 6th by 4:30. Thank you in advance for your help in supporting another successful Veterans Day Celebration at DeSana. 

For this year’s celebration, we want to hear from our veterans that are connected to DeSana. Our students are creating questions that will be sent via email to these veterans. We are asking them to introduce themselves and respond to the questions through a recorded video, which will be used during our virtual Veterans Day celebration. So if you know a veteran that has a DeSana connection, please contact Ashley Starr at so that he can reach out to this person. A link to join us virtually for this celebration will be provided.
