Honoring Our Vets

In honor of Veterans Day, third-graders at Robbins Lane Elementary School created thank-you cards for the brave men and women who have served our country. Robbins Lane music teacher Dr. Catherine DaSilva personally handed out 75 cards to veterans in attendance at the Veterans Day Parade in New York City on Nov. 11. She said the recipients were touched by the students’ kind words and illustrations. “Many were moved to tears and gave a hearty thank-you for being thought of in such a lovely way,” said Dr. DaSilva.

Additional cards from Robbins Lane students were sent to the Syosset VFW Hall.
