Celebrating Veteran’s Day 2017

On Veterans Day we stop and take time to honor our veterans and members in the military to thank them for their service to our country.

At St. Anthony School, some classes invited special guests who were parents in the military for the “Invite a Vet to School” day.  In PS1 and K1, Mr. Smith talked  about the different branches of the military and the work he does to serve others in the Marine Corps.  In K2, Mr Wethe talked to the students about the different types of work in the  Marine Corps including his job of flying helicopters. Dr. Recupero was in the Army and she showed the K2 students  a photo with men and women wearing the uniforms of the different military branches.  She also set up a hands-on hospital in the classroom and the students practiced listening to each others hearts, bandaging broken limbs, getting and giving shots, etc..  In the PK2 class, Dr. Campagna, who is in the Army talked about how the military helps take care of sick  people in the military and in the greater community.  The guests were outstanding  teachers, and the students learned a lot and enjoyed their visit. Thank you to Garner and  Greyson Smith, Emmaline Wethe,  Victoria and Apolina Recupero, and Nico Campagna  for sharing their parents with us.

St. Anthony School honored our Veterans and military with the message, ” God Bless Our Vets” on the fence of the two- story building, surrounding it with red, white and blue ribbons with the names of special Veterans or military personnel, many who are our loved ones and friends.

May God continue to bless our Military and Veterans always for their dedication and service to our Country!

Happy Veteran’s Day! 🇺🇸

Just another typical Wednesday

It was just another typical Wednesday for 6th Grader, Breanna Luchetti, who was working diligently in computer class. So when she heard her teacher announce a visitor, she continued with her work, thinking it was just another prospective family on a school tour. After a few moments of silence, curiosity got the best of her and she and looked up to see her dad standing over her, holding his phone. She then heard a voice say, “Hi Honey” and realized that it was her mother, Natalia Luchetti, who was on a surprise visit home from deployment in Italy and Japan. LTJG. Luchetti, of the US Navy, was on a four-day visit home, after which she joined her squadron in Whidbey, Washington.

Breanna has been attending St. Anthony School since February 4, 2015, with the care and love of her dad, AWF1 Joseph Luchetti, also in the Navy. She is an Honor student at St. Anthony School and a member of the Student Body Council. Breanna is a member of the Drama club, and participates in Volleyball for the CSAL. Breanna will finish her studies here but will be moving to Jacksonville, Florida at the end of the school year. Breanna is a special student from a military home. She is full of resilience, intelligence and strength, and we are proud to call her a St. Anthony School Warrior. We are so happy to share these photos of her surprise reunion with her family.
