Letters to Our Soldiers
Over a decade ago, the Letters to Our Soldiers initiative started as a response to one of our students had upon receiving a letter while at basic training. Since then, "Letters" has become a dynamic organization that changes with the needs and requests of the brave men and women it serves. Past activities include writing letters, collecting used cell phones to exchange for military phone cards, mailing pillows, sheets, bikes, tools, cookies, personal care items, reading material, soccer balls and small dolls, Christmas and Valentine letters and packages and any other item that has been requested.
"Letters" is now integrated into our Discovery and Club activities. The club has also organized the Veteran's Day assembly with often features visits from Veterans, musical tributes and very moving student presentations.
