Buckley’s Lower School students showed their love for our Veterans this month by participating in Nassau County’s ‘Valentines For Veterans’ initiative.
Each year, thousands of Valentines are collected from students throughout Nassau, and distributed to Veterans in local hospitals or nursing homes. Buckley students—from nursery through fourth grade—rose to the occasion this year, creating extremely thoughtful and beautiful Valentines, letting our Veterans know that they have not been forgotten.
Here are a few excerpts from some of the Buckley Valentines:
Thank you for your service and for making the world a better place for me and I really mean it.
Dear Army, Navy, Marine or Air Force Veteran,
You have made great sacrifices. We all sleep better at night now. I hope you have a very Happy Valentine’s Day.
I promise I will never ever forget what you did for our country. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Thank you to all of the students and teachers who participated in this special event!
