Thanksgiving is a great time of year to express gratitude. It is important that Americans give thanks for their freedom. The perfect way to do this is by thanking our active troops, our veterans, our heroes. It is important to remind students of the importance of showing gratitude for those who serve.
To honor our service members this Veterans Day, write thank you letters and cards or have a candy collection for our active troops in Afghanistan. Our school is collecting wrapped Halloween candy for the troops. There is a big red bin in the entry way of the school where children and families can drop off their candy donations!
