Homestead Celebrates Veterans Day

Mr. Hicks


On Friday, November 11, 2016, Homestead welcomed over 50 Veterans to their Veterans Day assembly. A small breakfast with photo opportunities were held before the assembly in the cafeteria for the students and their Veteran. The assembly is a great opportunity for students to learn what a Veteran is and why we celebrate Veterans Day. Homestead students wrote letters, shared poems, handed out flowers to the Veterans and all students joined in singing special songs. Lieutenant Antwain Hicks, father of fourth grader Jayden Hicks, spoke, sharing a story from his experiences on the importance of teamwork. Homestead would like to thank all the wonderful Veterans that came and thank you for your service.
