HELD EVERY JANUARY, NATIONAL SCHOOL CHOICE WEEK (NSCW) SHINES A SPOTLIGHT ON EFFECTIVE EDUCATION OPTIONS FOR CHILDREN.
National School Choice Week was founded in 2011 to promote the concept of all forms of school choice: district schools, district magnet schools, charter schools, private schools, and home schooling. The week of events is scheduled the last week of January each year. January 20-26, 2019.
IN HONOR OF OUR BOARD MEMBER, NSCW, HAS SPOTLIGHTED OUR EVENT, THIS YEAR.
School choice means giving parents access to the best K-12 education options for their children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.
Our Color/Honor Guard has been performing Military Honors at many functions local, State and National level for approximately the last thirty years. The Color/Honor Guard has been known as the New Mexico Vietnam Veterans, Northern New Mexico Chapter; and now the Vietnam Veterans of America, Northern New Mexico Chapter #996. Our Color Guard/Honor Guard has conducted an average of 50-55 functions annually. The Military Honors which have been completed for the past thirty years are as follows:
- POSTING / PRESENTING / RETIRE THE COLORS: Post or Present and Retire the Colors at the opening and closing of many different ceremonies.
- FUNERAL HONOR GUARDS: Provided Military Honors at funerals for our Brothers in Arms and family that have passed on.
- PARADES: Performed in various parades at many locations with our Colors.
- FLAG FOLDING AND FLAG ETIQUETTE: Provided Flag Folding Ceremonies at many Schools and Senior Citizen Centers throughout the State. This includes the 13 folds of the American Flag and what each fold stands for. The students are provided with information on the Proper Flag Etiquette for the American Flag.
- SENIOR VETERAN PINING AND RECOGNITION: We have a joint working relationship with Amber care HOSPICE, where we are asked to go to the Senior Centers or Senior Veterans residence to perform a Special Pining and recognition of these Veterans. Those ceremonies include:
- Reading out the Special Recognition in a Military fashion for the Senior Veteran.
- Award of a Certificate and pin recognizing their Military Service from Amber care HOSPICE.
