My students at the Searcy County Alternative Learning Environment were very excited to do a service project. I asked them if they would like to make Christmas cards to send to the soldiers that are deployed. They were very enthusiastic! In fact since we were unable to attend the Veteran’s Day Festivities held at the Searcy County Courthouse, we used that day to make and assemble over 800 cards to send!! Our high school ALE program maintains around 20 students so this was quite the achievement! This was a wonderful lesson for the students to be able to experience.
