District 66 Honors our Veterans Over the last several years, our schools have celebrated Veterans Day by welcoming veterans who are friends or relatives of District 66 students and staff to join us for special assemblies and activities to honor them. Although our district activities looked much different this year, without our traditional in-person "meet and greets", our students and staff still found meaningful ways to honor both past and present veterans for their service and sacrifice to our country. Ide and Prairieview students and staff compiled special video tributes that included photos of veterans, audio recordings, and student artwork as a way of honoring these heroes. Lakeview also developed an alternative way of honoring veterans by incorporating a virtual lesson that included students watching video interviews of veterans speaking about their experiences in different branches of the military.
