February 19, 9:30 am
Liberty Day is StoneBridge’s annual tribute to our military and is one of the most beloved events by our community.
The highlight of the day is a candle ceremony, where students present a candle to honor the service of family members, living and deceased. Armed Forces veterans, active duty, and retired members are invited every year to participate in this ceremony with their students. A slideshow with pictures of these military service members is also presented during this special day.
StoneBridge School looks forward every year to this very special day of honoring the men and women who protect our liberty.
Registration for Liberty Day is now closed.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
- Where can I/we park? There is limited parking at StoneBridge School. Courtesy shuttle will also be available to and from ALIVE Church on Jolliff Road.
- Are all military family members allowed to participate? Yes! Parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, extended family, and close family friends of any StoneBridge student are all welcome to participate. Those who are able to attend the ceremony may walk with their SBS relative in the candle ceremony. If none are able to attend, the children walk alone as representatives of their military family members.
- How does the candle ceremony work? During the Liberty Day Chapel, students and military members who are participating in the ceremony leave the sanctuary to line up in classrooms for the processional. The students and military members are organized by the student’s last name. The students (with or without military members) form a line and are announced from the rear of the sanctuary. Once their names are called, each service member and student will then walk together to the front of the sanctuary, where they present a candle to commemorate their service. Prior to the the processional, the military service songs for each branch are sung.
- Should military service members wear their uniform? Members of the military may wear uniforms but they are not required to.
