Mrs. Boggs's third grade class decided to collect pop tabs for Veterans. They decided to take it a step further and send a care package to some troops overseas in Jordan. The children all wrote letters to the service men and women. The children received a reply back from those stationed in Jordan. It was a great learning experience for the students and they really enjoyed it. The service men and women told the students that they appreciated the support from back home and thanked the students personally for that. Some students even received patches and “Pogs” (tokens to buy things at the exchange for the men and women) from the solider that wrote to them. They also collected baskets full of supplies for Christmas for our veterans at the Oak Hill Veterans Home and those supplies were delivered to them on Christmas Eve. They were very thankful for all the extra supplies they received.     December 2016
