Students Write Letters to Marines
The students and staff at Morris Elementary participated in a drive to brighten the holidays for Marine troops stationed overseas. In conjunction with a letter writing unit, students each wrote a letter thanking the Marines for their service and wished them an enjoyable holiday season despite being separated from their loved ones back home. Students and staff also brought food and personal care items to make their holiday seem a little more like home. Twelve boxes were decorated, packed and shipped to the unit of Marines. We are anxiously awaiting news of their arrival.
