Remembrance Day Across the District

Posted On Wednesday November 03, 2021

Despite the current restrictions limiting assemblies to 50 students or two classes, the majority of schools are creating virtual Remembrance Day programs that will be shared with all students in their classrooms. A few select schools that have smaller populations will hold in-person assemblies as they are able to assemble students and staff and stay within the 50-person limit. Board of Education trustees were invited to attend in-person or virtual ceremonies at each school. Here are some of the creative ways students honoured our Veterans:
