GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich.--On Friday, November 8, Knapp Charter Academy held its annual Veterans Day assembly.
Students invited their parents, relatives, and friends who are veterans to attend the special event. All week, principal Dave Turcotte wore a poppy flower in honor of our veterans. Students were curious about the flower and asked a lot of questions, which turned into a wonderful teaching moments about our nation’s history.
Turcotte also read, “In Flanders Fields” at the assembly, a poem written by a Canadian doctor who tended to the wounded in France during World War I.
