We had our Remembrance Day Assembly at school today. (Yes, we had school. No garbage pick up, banks, or mail.) Our assembly was beautiful as always. Our school has a large population of military families. It is so powerful to see all of the parents in uniform. There were close to 200 parents in attendance. The children were amazing! They were quiet and respectful. They always seem to come through on this important occasion. Here's a video we watched at our assembly. Isn't it great?
On Saturday, I went shopping in the northern United States with a bus of teachers (great time!) and we were surprised that there were no poppies. I hadn't realized that they are now a Canadian/British tradition.
