Holiday letters to wounded soldiers

I received an email a couple of weeks ago, requesting holiday letters and/or cards to be sent to wounded military personnel. I thought this would be a good idea for a class project, since we could reinforce our typing skills, learn a little about letter writing, and hopefully, help to brighten the spirits of a recovering soldier or two. I think the students have enjoyed this project and I have definitely enjoyed reading their letters. You guys are awesome!

If you would like to send a holiday card or greeting, the address is:
We Support You During Your Recovery c/o American Red Cross P.O. Box 419 Savage, MD 20763-0419

The letters need to be postmarked by December 27, 2008.

Goodbye Thanksgiving, Hello Christmas!

Wow! It is hard to believe that in only two more weeks, we will all be on Christmas break! Some upcoming events in December include, the Christmas program on December 8 and a lot of Christmas festivities on December 19, which is also the last day before break. On the 19th, seventh and eighth grade will watch a movie in the morning, followed by the volleyball game, lunch, and then the Christmas dance! Hope you all have an enjoyable December!
