Wednesday, November 11th is Remembrance Day. Poppies will be distributed to the in-school students on Monday, November 2nd. The poppy has been widely recognized as a symbol of remembrance, since it was first adopted in 1921. By wearing the poppy, we demonstrate our thanks to those who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy.
Whiteside is asking each student and staff member to donate to the Richmond Poppy Fund. For health and safety purposes, please try to make donations through School Cash Online at the link below. All monies collected will be sent to the Fund to provide assistance to ex-servicemen, women and their families in need. (The link has been revised to allow just one choice to be selected. Any donations made to the previous link will still be collected.)
Thank you so much for your support!
