Veterans Day Teach-In and Thank-A-Vet Luncheon, Wednesday, November 11th.
Veterans will be teaching Lower School classes and conducting a special Upper School assembly designed to educate our students on the courage, sacrifice and commitment of our nation’s Armed Forces, and the debt all free people owe to America’s veterans. The classes begin at 9:00 am; the luncheon is at Noon and the special assembly is scheduled for 1:30 pm, in our gym.
Also on November 11th, the Virginia State Police will be conducting a Safe Teen Driver Workshop with our 11th and 12th graders. The troopers will work with our teen drivers to help them safely understand and experience the dangers of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Distracted (DWD).
The teens try to drive a golf cart through a special off-road course, under the supervision of State Troopers, while wearing special goggles that enable them to simulate the experience of driving while under the influence. It is a sobering experience!
A second exercise involves teens receiving and responding to a short text message while driving. This shows teens that Driving While Distracted is a real danger!
The State Troopers will also conduct classroom workshops for our 9th graders, as well as our 11th and 12th graders.
Friday, November 13th: Guest Storyteller Celebrates National Young Reader Week!
Leigh Lambert, the Director of the Regional Library System and an active member of the community theater in Mecklenburg County, will be spending the day with students in our Pre-K program, and grades K-5.
Ms. Lambert brings these stories to life, with dramatic readings, humorous flourishes, audience participation and a warm, storyteller’s knack for engaging children.
Every day is a great day to be a Kavalier, but next week will be three extra special “Wows!” at Kenston Forest School!
