Poppies for Remembrance Day
Thursday, November 11th is Remembrance Day, and poppies will be distributed to students the week before. 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. All monies collected will be sent to the Fund to provide assistance to ex-servicemen, women and their families in need.
Thank you so much for your support!
