Field of Flags

Do you have a special veteran in your life you would like to honor? 

We are thrilled to announce the return of a cherished tradition that warms our hearts each year. At George White Elementary, we take great pride in honoring our veterans, and this year, we invite you to join us in dedicating a flag to a special veteran in your life.

🎗️ The Field of Flags 🎗️

Our Field of Flags has become a symbol of gratitude and respect for the brave men and women who have served our country. This tradition allows us to recognize and pay tribute to their sacrifices, ensuring that their legacy lives on in our hearts.

Please remember to submit your dedications no later than November 6th. While we aim to have all flags in place by November 9th, late submissions may still be installed after the official day of recognition. Our commitment to honoring our heroes knows no bounds.

Let’s come together as a community to fill our Field of Flags with gratitude and love. Let’s remind our veterans that their service is appreciated, celebrated, and cherished. Please join us on Thursday, November 9th at a special flagpole assembly to honor our veterans!

Dedicate a flag to a veteran in your life. We will proudly display your veteran’s flag in our Field of Flags display.

Know a Veteran?

Do you know a veteran who would like to join us in greeting our students at drop-off and stay for our flagpole assembly on Thursday, 11/9? Have them (or help them) email Lidia Corey at Lidia.corey@gwpta.org

Get Involved!

Have your child write a THANK YOU card for a veteran!

  1. Give the THANK YOU card to a vet when they arrive to school on 11/9
  2. Mail it to a special vet you know
  3. Use it as a random act of kindness and give it to a vet you know in our community

Allow your student time to complete the “Service Honor Courage” worksheet. Help him/her think about ways they already serve their community, or show honor, or act in a courageous way. All completed work will be on display throughout the hallways, proving that our kids too, like our vets, can serve, have honor, and be courageous too! Handouts must be returned by Nov 6th to be on display before Veterans Day!
