Holiday Cards for our Military

KGCS students created nearly 1000 cards and letters in support of the "Holiday Cards for our Military Challenge". 

For the last 16 years, Dr. Laura Landerman-Garber has been collecting holiday cards to send to American military personnel stationed overseas. Last year, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDE) joined that campaign and encouraged students to sign cards to send to our brave men and women in uniform. They collected more than 50,000 cards. 

This year the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is encouraging schools to join in this effort. Each year thousands of United States Military personnel deploy to foreign soils, remote sites, on board ships, and to submarines all over the world. The holiday season is a perfect time for us to show these brave men and women how much we appreciate their service and how we are thinking of them while they are away protecting our freedoms.
