Meet Patrick! 4th Grade's "Adopted Soldier." Patrick is a 21-year-old engineer for the Army, currently stationed in Kuwait and being forward deployed to Iraq soon. Students write letters to Patrick, send crafts, and also care package items he could use (like Q-tips, toothpaste, etc). Patrick has been such a wonderful resource for learning and really bringing a new appreciation to our students for what our soldiers are doing overseas!
If anyone would like to donate money (for items or shipping) or small non-perishable items for Patrick, please talk to one of the 4th-grade teachers or send the item(s) to school with your student. We send care packages once per month. He and his platoon are very grateful for all of the support and words of encouragement!
