Thank you to our Veterans

Every year we celebrate Veteran's Day by inviting Dunbarton veterans in for breakfast as well as a recognition ceremony. By thanking our veterans we are not only providing much-needed recognition, we are also teaching our students the life skill of saying thank you and shaking another person's hand. This is a powerful experience for both the veterans and the students.
