From the archives I don’t know which was worse: losing my girl or my white‐over‐blue Monte Carlo.

(Richard Freedman–Times-Herald) VETERANS DAY POSTER The 2019 National Veterans Day Poster Contest is underway and the deadline is April 1. Each year the Veterans Day National Committee publishes a commemorative Veterans Day poster. The poster is selected from artwork submitted by artists nationwide and is distributed to VA facilities, military installations around the world, and across cities and towns in our great nation. It also serves as the cover of the official program for the Veterans Day Observance at Arlington National Cemetery. These posters over the years have illustrated the rich history of our beloved country’s servicemen and servicewomen. The poster clearly reflects our pride and patriotism in saluting veterans while providing the thematic artistry for the year. The theme for the 2019 Veterans Day Poster is: “Service.” Veterans contribute to American society in many ways; not just during their time in active duty. Throughout our history, military service members have put on their uniforms to protect the values and liberties that this nation was built upon. But that doesn’t stop once the uniform comes off and their time in active duty has ended. Veterans take the lessons they have learned and the experiences they’ve gained and continue their service to our nation by strengthening our communities. They become our nation’s leaders, scientists, entrepreneurs. Veterans are the most active volunteers working to improve communities across our country. Service goes beyond the uniform. This Veterans Day, we honor the men and women who have worn their uniform who continue to serve our country. Please go to http://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday / for more information. Please note that the deadline for submissions is April 1. The Veterans Day National Committee will convene a selection subcommittee in May to review submissions and make a final selection.

Schools invited to apply for the 2019 California Distinguished School honor must meet a variety of rigorous eligibility criteria involving multiple accountability measures on their performance and progress on the state indicators on the California School Dashboard. They are selected based on their submission of an application, including a comprehensive description of the school’s signature practices, and a successful application review. According to Associate Superintendent of Educational Services and Special Education Andrea Lemos, “This is an honor and well-deserved recognition for MIT Academy to be eligible to apply.” The CDE reports that 208 schools were eligible and invited to apply for the Distinguished Schools recognition this year; winning schools will be announced in March.
