In preparation for their Confirmation ceremony, our sixth graders made care packages to send to soldiers overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Each boy wrote letters expressing their gratitude to our armed forces. They also participated in a Facetime call with a recent veteran, Captain Jonathan Anderson, who talked about his two tours of service and his experiences as a field artillery officer.
They learned about the best items to send to soldiers and prepared a list, which included card games, spices/hot sauce, powder to enhance water, oatmeal and ramen noodles.
In total the boys made 22 care packages, which are being sent this week to bases around the world, expressing our thanks for protecting our country.
