Veterans Day Showcase

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, an armistice went into effect and all fighting between the allied nations and Germany ceased (WWI). Since 1938, our country has paused every November 11th to honor all of our veterans (a person who has served in the military). It brings a great sense of pride to our country to honor the brave heroes who fought or continue to fight for the freedom of our nation, every November 11th.

Each year for Veterans Day, the Palms History Department and Leadership class pay homage to the brave men and women who server or have served in the United States Armed Forces by creating the Palms Veterans Day Showcase, where Palms faculty, staff, and students honor veterans with connections to Palms Middle School (relatives).

In most years, the Showcase is a display in the school entrance. For 2020, because we are not presently on campus, the Showcase is online.
