Grade 11‎ > ‎

Week 30 - 5/15/12

Suggested Activities:

Write a letter/ Send a card to a soldier:
On Husky Helper Day, Cindy Stevens and a group of students will prepare boxes to send to soldiers in Afghanistan and to soldiers recovering in a military hospital in the United States.  She needs letters and cards to send to the soldiers.  Students can write a letter or make a card to send to the soldiers.   

Things to possibly include in the cards/letters:
  • Some basic information about the student writing the letter : first name, age, hobbies/interests,  etc.
  • Questions the students may have for the soldier they're writing to
  • Thoughts / Sentiments / Gratitude for the services these soldiers are providing
  • Thoughts / Get-Well Sentiments for the soldiers who have returned home injured
We have heard back from some of the troops who have received our supplies / letters, and they are grateful for the small kindnesses we've shown them; it proves that these men and women haven't been forgotten 

Please send the letters and cards to Room 41.  We will make certain that Cindy Stevens gets the letters to include in the packages on Husky Helper Day.
