Today LaPerche students and staff were honored to have 15 active and retired service members join us at school. The soldiers each spoke from the heart and shared their personal experiences as well as advice for the students. They reflected on the importance of volunteering and demonstrating respect for others. Needless to say, there was not a dry eye in the house! Please take a minute to talk with your child to hear his/her thoughts about the gathering. The LaPerche staff is very thankful for the opportunity to learn from and celebrate the service of each individual.
