Valentines for Vets
James Reese and Candace Purcell, Student Council co-sponsors, introduced the project to the Student Council as part of a community service project. The Student Council members voted unanimously to promote this as a school-wide project. The classroom teachers were asked to have their students make the Valentines for Vets cards. The project was a success and was enjoyed by the students. Some teachers presented a lesson about Veterans to their students and shared the book “H is for Honor” before making the Valentine cards so that the students understood why they were making the cards and who they were making them for.
