Vaughan will be hosting the 19th Annual Veterans Day Celebration on Monday, November 12. We will honor the men and women who have served our country. To celebrate this special occasion, we are asking Vaughan Vikings to invite any relative or special friend they have who is a Veteran (of peace-time or war-time) to come to our school on Monday, November 12, 2018 at 7:50 am.
Students may also invite a relative or friend who has a loved one currently serving in the military or the survivor of a deceased veteran. Veterans and special guests will be introduced to the student body and faculty via the television and honored at a special program.
Please complete the Information Form and return to the office by Friday, October 19. A formal invitation will be sent to the Veteran or special guest by the school office. If you have any questions, contact Vaughan Elementary at 972-727-0470. Thank you for supporting this special celebration!
Stars of Honor
As part of the Veterans Day Celebration, we will be filling the Vaughan hallways with Stars of Honor to recognize our student’s family members and friends who have served or are presently serving our nation in the military. This will provide an opportunity for our students to better appreciate both current and past military service men and women who have defended our nation and our freedom through times of war and peace.
To have a Veteran (living or deceased) honored on this wall, please CLICK HERE for the form and fill it out. Please return the form to the school office by Friday, October 19.
We’d love to fill the hallways, so please check your family tree and submit as many names as you can. Additional forms are available in the office, or you can attach an additional page if needed. All names submitted in the past 2 years already have a star created and will continue to be displayed each year.Thank you!
Students and Veterans may also send pictures or memorabilia to be displayed in the library. The students, faculty, and guests of our school enjoy viewing photos, uniforms, medals, etc. Vaughan will take special care of all items on loan for this special learning event.
Please bring memorabilia to the school library by Friday, October 26. Be sure to include name, year, and note of explanation with any items sent. Vaughan will use the information to make a label to display with the items. Also identify to which Vaughan student items should be returned.
