33 Sites About Memorial Day

This year, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 26, 2014. Even though our school had a record number of snow days this winter, we are fortunate that the superintendent did not shorten our four day weekend. Memorial Day is the day we honor those who fought for our country, and a day our students should be made aware of, since our freedom is due to the sacrifices of our fighting men and women.
