Chelsie and Chelsey had their students fill out forms, undergo medical examinations, legal inspections, and even test to determine their mental fitness before admittance into the country.

Members of the Landmark family joined together to honor US Veterans and remember their sacrifice. The students, staff, and faculty gathered at the front of the school on November 11th to learn from, and pay tribute to, those who have served our country.

To veterans at Landmark past and present, thank you for your service!
