Mr. Lankau/Ms. Olsen’s class write letters to veterans

Students in Dennis Lankau and Elyssa Olsen’s third-grade classroom wrote “thank you” letters to veterans from post 414 as a Veterans Day learning activity. 

As the students wrote the letters, they learned what a veteran is, and how veterans serve our country — preserving our freedoms, protecting our country and keeping us safe. The class also had a discussion comparing the rights and freedoms of the United States of America vs. other countries that do not enjoy a free and safe society like we are fortunate to have — largely due to the sacrifice and service of our brave veterans.
