veterans Day 2016
Veterans Day is November 11th and the Darby Creek Synergy Club has 4 challenges for you and your family:
#1 BRING IN ITEMS for care packages that will be sent to men and women all over the WORLD!
It’s easy! Just bring in items and place it in the Blue collection container by your classroom door. A Synergy member will pick up from your classroom daily and keep a count of items. A running total will be kept on the Synergy Bulletin Board. Each item will count towards your class total. On November 11th, the class with the most points will get a COOL award!
We are collecting Care Package items like:
Travel size- shampoo, lotion, hand sanitizer, individual tooth brushes, small toothpaste, Q-tips, cotton ball, deodorant, decks of cards, boot cut sock, hand/foot warmers, water bottle flavoring, pop tarts, individual cereal boxes, ziploc bags all sizes, and many more.
Go to www.hilliardvetparade.com and click on “HELP FILL A TRUCK” tab for a full list of items to collect.
#2 HELP US COVER THE BULLETIN BOARD WITH VETERAN PICTURES!
Bring in “COPIES” of Veteran pictures from your family or friends. Make sure it includes their name, branch and years in the service. Place pictures in the container by the bulletin board by the gym.
#3 WE NEED LETTERS!
Write letters to a Veteran. They can be as simple as “Thank You” or include questions. If you ask questions in your letter make sure you place your first name, teacher’s name and Darby Creek Elementary on it so the Veteran will have a place to send a response to if they desire. Our SYNERGY CLUB GOAL is to have at least one letter per student at Darby Creek by November 10th. Letters will be distributed to Veterans at Darby Creek and at the Veterans Day Parade in Hilliard on 11/11/16 at 7:00pm. Place all letters in the container by the bulletin board by the gym.
#4 VETERANS DAY PARADE
Come to the parade. It is on Friday, November 11th at 7:00 pm in Hilliard. It starts at the Fairgrounds, goes through Old Hilliard and ends up at the park by the West pool. The Veterans would appreciate our support! If you go to the parade, you will see us collecting more items for care packages from other people in the community.
