Veteran's Day Assembly

On Monday, November 11, Wood Oaks will be holding an all-school assembly in honor of Veteran’s Day. As principal, and a veteran myself, I will start the assembly by briefly sharing some of my experiences both in the U.S. Navy and after I left military service. I will then introduce Shane Anderson, a former Navy SEAL medic who will speak to the students about patriotism. We have worked with Shane here in D27 for a few years as he has contributed to our Emergency Preparedness Plan.

Our Student Leadership group will share a couple gifts with Shane at the conclusion of his visit. Shane has also graciously volunteered to hang out at Wood Oaks during the lunch periods to continue any discussion or answer any questions that the students may have.
