Veteran’s Day (November 11) is quickly approaching!

Even though we are currently learning virtually, we still want to recognize the many veterans who have connections to Stratford Landing with a photo slideshow.

We need your help to make this possible! Privacy and safety are of upmost importance to us, so this slideshow will only be shared within our SLES family.

If your family includes someone who is currently serving or someone who has served in the military in the past, we would love to include them in our slideshow. If your Stratford student is also in the photo, that’s great!

If you would like to have your photo(s) included in the slideshow, please email the photo(s) to You may include names/ranks/branch if you would like, but it is not required.

All photos need to be submitted by Friday, October 23. Thanks in advance for making this year’s SLES Veteran’s Day Celebration a success!

Military Student Buddy Program

The SLES Military Support Group will be creating a Military Student Buddy Program for the 2020-2021 school year.

We understand the challenge of moving to a new school during a traditional school year has been made even more challenging with the virtual start and Covid restrictions. We hope the buddy program will help ease that challenge a little.

Please complete the Military Buddy Form if your student is interested in meeting or being a buddy!

Submit one form per each student interested in participating.  We will do our best to match students in the same grade/class when possible.  Once paired, the families can communicate with each other to decide how to best foster the buddy partnership for their students.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jen or Rachel at
