Mobley’s Monday Message 11/11/19


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”       ~John F. Kennedy


Happy Veterans Day! Time for us to show our gratitude by reaching out to any military personnel we know who have served the United States and thank them for their bravery and service to our country. Be sure to take a moment to recognize that today is Veterans Day in your classrooms as well.

This Week in History

On November 11, 1919, “Armistice Day” was first observed as the first anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution for an annual observance. On Nov. 11, 1938, this day now known as “Veterans Day” became a national holiday. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans, alive or deceased, especially giving thanks to the living veterans who have served.
