 Remember the Fallen: Memorial Day is a time for reflectionMemorial Day is our federal holiday for remembering the people who died while serving as soldiers for our country. Flags and flowers are placed on graves of fallen soldiers. Memorials are held.

Memorial Day also signals the end of the school year. For educators, that’s a time for closure and exhaustion.

As we rest during Memorial Day, let us never forget to honor those who served us and gave us the privilege of freedom. We thank those soldiers and hold their families close to our hearts.
