As Valentine's Day approaches students at East Lake School write messages to the brave men and women who selflessly and honorably served our country to protect our freedom. This activity serves as a great opportunity to allow students to thank a veteran for his or her service, sacrifice, and commitment to our country. Students throughout the school made cards for veterans to send out for the upcoming holiday. Kindergartners wrote simple messages such as “You are brave” and “Thank you” following a discussion about bravery. Students in Mrs. LiCausi’s 4th grade and Mrs. LaTorres 3rd grade classes did their part in sharing positive words for our troops.
