Service for Soldiers

Students in Mr. Morris’ English 11 AP classes created care packages and letters of support for US veterans residing at the VA Hospital in Northport. Students read All Quiet on the Western Front, which helped to sensitize them to the experiences of soldiers and veterans who have served in various wars through the years. Their reading of the novel is complemented with classic war- themed- poetry. Using Service Learning Grant funds students purchased food and personal care items to send in care packages with hand written notes addressed to veterans them for their service.
