Veterans Day

On Monday, November 11, Dogwood will honor and celebrate our veterans with a special Veterans Day program in the gym. The program will consist of musical performances, student readers, and recognition of veterans in attendance. Please remember that the children are honoring the veterans, not performing for parents. Due to the number of veterans expected and the limited space in the gym, only veterans and their families are invited to attend.  For those wishing to see the program, the Dogwood PTO will broadcast it live on our Facebook page.  Contact Karen Viotti with questions.
