For the sixth year in a row, Cherry Creek Schools will host the annual Veterans and Active Military Appreciation Football Game, an event that invites current and former service members to one of our schools for a unique community gathering. This year’s event will begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7 with a communal meal at the Cherokee Trail High School cafeteria, followed by a football game at 6 p.m. between Smoky Hill High School and Rangeview High School at neighboring Legacy Stadium.
Our students, teachers and staff members will be on hand to show their appreciation, while our veterans and active military will have the chance to share their insights and experiences, all while enjoying food, football and fun at one of our great neighborhood schools. Local businesses will also participate, donating food and supplies for the communal meal.
The event is a chance for our students to learn from the insights and experiences of our community members. Current and former service members from all the branches of the military will interact directly with students and be a part of the district’s dedication to excellence.
“This event is an opportunity for all of us in the Cherry Creek Schools community to show our appreciation to our heroes,” said district Athletics and Activities Director Larry Bull. “We are glad to have this chance to honor our veterans and active military members.”
