Christmas Cards for Veterans

4th grade “JOY” by Jacob
For our school-wide Thanks­giv­ing project, we decided to show our thanks to some very spe­cial people… 

My K through 7th grade stu­dents have been busy mak­ing Christ­mas cards for Vet­er­ans, to spread some Christ­mas cheer and let these men and women know they are loved and appreciated! 

The hun­dreds of cards we made will first be dis­played at our church, where we’ll col­lect dozens of sig­na­tures on each one.  Then, the cards will be lov­ingly deliv­ered to the VA hos­pi­tals in our region, just in time for Christ­mas.  The best part of this project for me has been see­ing how seri­ously our stu­dents are tak­ing this oppor­tu­nity!  This is a way that they, as kids, can use their cre­ativ­ity to bless those who have sac­ri­ficed so much to pro­tect our free­dom.  Art projects like this can be a great way to get kids think­ing beyond them­selves and focus­ing on oth­ers, and what bet­ter time to do this than Thanks­giv­ing and Christmas! 

Thank you, Veterans!
Our Kinders learned how to draw stars for their cards!
