Adopt-A-Marine
This year, my class adopted two U.S. Marines and continues to support the Marine that my 2009-2010 class adopted. The students and their families contribute items to be shipped in care packages as well as money to help pay for shipping costs. The students have written friendly letters of encouragement and created birthday cards to celebrate the birthday of one of our Marines. The students also raised money and made a donation to a local benefit in support of the recovery efforts of one of our Marines. The students have learned a lot from our Marines and the true sacrifices they make on a daily basis so that we can live in peace here at home.
