Week of Valor at Andrew Robinson Elementary

Jacksonville, Florida has its first ever “Week of Valor”
celebration honoring veterans of all services.

This event was a celebration to show Jacksonville as one
of the most military friendly and engagingly supportive
cities in the country. There were appreciation luncheons
for veterans, a Veterans Day parade and during the week
veterans were honored in many ways. Veterans where even
invited to speak to students in schools in the DCPS.

William Jackson, STEM teacher invited two Navy personnel
to come and speak to students about their successful and
exciting careers, importance of education and the use of
STEM in the Navy and military as a whole.

This” Week of Valor” was a great success especially for the
students at Andrew Robinson Elementary.

Two distinguished Navy veterans spoke to the students at
ARE about education, technology, engineering and Navy
life from their experiences. Celebrating over 200 years of Navy
tradition of honor, courage, protecting the United States of America
from danger by sea and air. Students learned how and why the Navy
came into existence. To combat the threat of pirates on the seas
and oceans centuries ago. The Navy’s mission has changed to meet
the high tech threats of the 21st century, but first and foremost
to protect the United States of America from sea attacks.

The students asked many questions of the Navy personnel and
each question was answered with excitement and praise to the
students.

Andrew Robinson Elementary is a STEM model school so many
of the questions were related to those areas of Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics.

Great thanks and appreciation is extended to Mr. Steven Davis
and Ms. Amber Thayer of the United States Navy for taking time to
talk to the students at Andrew Robinson Elementary.
