Honoring our Heros since 2011

  • The Cherry Creek School District is committed to honoring our heroes, the active service members and veterans who've sacrified to ensure our freedom, our happiness and our safety.

    Since 2011, CCSD has shown that commitment by celebrating Veterans Week, a districtwide event held in November that includes celebrations at every single building. From neighborhood parades to student concerts to community receptions, Veterans Week in CCSD features a wide array of tributes to service from the elementary to the high school level. What's more, the event provides an opportunity for students to honor the veterans in their family, and learn important, firsthand lessons about service, community and civic engagement from local heroes.

    "This is the right thing to do," said CCSD Superintendent Scott Siegfried, adding that the eighth annual event offered an important bridge between the military and CCSD students. "The first-person learning that our kids receive about sacrificing for the greater good brings their classroom history lessons to life. Talking to our veterans, shaking their hands – that makes it real."
