My 6th, 7th and 8th grades are making some holiday cards to send to our troops. We thought this was a good was to give them some encouragement. We wrote a personal message to one of the soldiers from the list. There was some info about where they were serving and a general idea of their position. Each student chose a name for their personalized card. Then they decorated the front with some cheerful painting or drawing. They will be distributed to each person by Christmas Day.
