The Three Village Central School District honored Veterans Day with several in-class lessons and events. Students of all grade levels at Arrowhead Elementary School designed cards and wrote messages of thanks to be donated to the Northport VA. Additionally, the Arrowhead school community participated in a Jeans for Troops Day on Thursday, Nov. 9. They collected monetary donations for the GI GO Fund which helps veterans returning to civilian life.
Similarly, the W.S. Mount Elementary School student government sponsored “Red, White and Jeans,” raising $330 to benefit military veterans and their families. Students and staff donated one dollar to wear jeans for the day. They also created cards, placemats and thank you notes to be delivered to the Stony Brook Veterans Home.
