Student Haley Barbour started this petition to the Hollis Brookline High School Administration, asking them to keep the Veteran's Day Assembly at HBHS. Due to the pressure, the high school administration announced the assembly would take place on Nov. 9, 2012.

As of Friday, October 12th, 2012, Hollis Brookline High School administration voted to cancel the annual Veteran's Day Assembly. Please sign this petition if you support the notion of keeping the assembly as a part of our school community!

Many of us have personal connections to veterans in our community, whether that be through family members or through previous school assemblies. If these veterans were willing to give their lives to serve and protect our country, shouldn't our high school be willing to give up 30 minutes of time to pay respect and thank local veterans for their service? By taking away the Veteran's Day Assembly at the high school, the administration is not only showing disrespect to our veterans, but they are showing disrespect to HBHS students by taking away a patriotic tradition we have all grown up with and fully support.

      Not fair to the veterans who served this country, it's only a 30 minute assembly, not asking too much. This just wouldn't be fair homey.

      The admin is just embarrassed that they canceled it in the first place, so they are being tough when the students of the school (the students are the reason the school exists, right?) want to put it back in place!

      Get real, administration.

      It is important for our students future to know the past history of our country and the sacrifices so many have made to preserve our freedom. Especially in light of the young girl in Pakistan who was shot in the head because she wanted to see girls educated.
