Dear FCSS Community:
This Sunday, November 11, is Veterans Day. An important tradition of the Fannin County School
System is having an annual Veterans Day program at each school. I am thankful that our schools
pause at this time each year to salute those who have served, as well as those who continue to serve,
our nation as a part of the United States Armed Forces. These events mean so much to the men and
women who have worn the uniform and take part – either as a spectator or a participant – in our
ceremonies. I am proud of our schools for all of their hard work to honor our veterans.
You are invited to any/all of the upcoming Veterans Day programs. They are scheduled as follows:
Monday, November 12
9:00 a.m.: West Fannin Elementary School
1:00 p.m.: East Fannin Elementary School
Tuesday, November 13
1:00 p.m.: Blue Ridge Elementary School
Wednesday, November 14
9:00 a.m.: Fannin County High School
1:00 p.m.: Fannin County Middle School
Americans turn to our military as a source of national strength. Freedom is not free, and our military
covers the cost to preserve it. There is a great pride in our nation’s veterans; because of them, we are
free. Thanks to today’s military, we will remain free. My very best wishes go to each veteran and
active member of the military. May God Bless America!
Michael Gwatney, Ed.D.
