WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Guest speaker Tracey Fallon’s theme as "Going Above and Beyond," which he emphasized during a visit with Chestnut Ridge Middle School sixth- and seventh-graders on Tuesday, November 5th.


Fallon, now retired but a former New Jersey State Teacher of the Year, spoke about his experience as a military veteran for 20 years and why students should recognize the sacrifices veterans make every day to keep our nation safe and secure. 


During Fallon’s lesson, students had a chance to contribute to the conversation by exchanging their own stories related to veterans in their lives. Throughout his presentation, Fallon shared historical perspective on the origins of Veterans Day and encouraged the students to say thank you to all veterans in public.
