During a special town hall on Friday, Elementary School 1 (ES1) families and scholars put together 80 care packages that will be mailed to soldiers at Camp Morehead in Afghanistan over the weekend.
Scholars in all grades wrote over 250 letters thanking soldiers for their service and wishing them a Happy Holiday. They also talked to Master Sergeant Jackie Hazley, the aunt of two BVP scholars at ES1, via Live Stream on an iPad. They had fun asking her questions about being a soldier and living in Afghanistan, where it was 1:00 a.m. during the town hall.
ES1 also sponsored a staff and scholar school-wide dress down day that raised close to $400 that went towards making the care packages.
Talk about BVP PRIDE!
