First-graders in Lori Gilbert’s class at Northern Elementary assembled gratitude gift packages for their adopted troop in the school café.

The school-wide program reaches 46 army soldiers each month with packages to coincide with the building’s themes of gratitude, joy and energy.

The soldiers, now serving in Kuwait, are responding with letters and American Flag badges which are displayed in the school lobby.
