Miller Avenue School second graders in Courtney Von Bargen’s class collaborated with students in Aimee Schwabe’s class to talk about Veterans Day. Together they made cards for veterans at the Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook. Several students shared connections to family members they have who are veterans along with their knowledge of the symbol of the Buddy Poppy, creating many teachable moments.
“It was really special when the classes applauded all the brave veterans who were named, in addition to others we are thankful for each and every day,” Von Bargen said.
