OPERATION GRATITUDE



Ms. Miller’s 2nd grade class has been very busy this month putting together a care package for deployed troops as part of the Operation Gratitude Program.  It is an organization that collects excess Halloween candy and distributes it to active troops, Veterans, new recruits and wounded soldiers. Each student donated some of their own Halloween candy along with toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss.  Not only did our students donate, but we also received donations from other staff members and local businesses.  In all, we collected and sent over 25 pounds of candy, along with at least 50 tooth care supplies.  Our soldiers will also enjoy reading the letters our students wrote to them as part of our letter writing unit.  We are hopeful that we will receive some return letters from different parts of the world! It will be a great chance to explore some geography and connect with troops currently serving our country.
