Elementary Students Send Valentine’s Day Gifts to Troops

Troops serving overseas received letters and handmade teddy bears for Valentine’s Day from
Tamarac Elementary students. As part of a service learning project, students in Sanada Bailey’s
and Ira Share’s classrooms sewed teddy bears, with the help of volunteer Ginny Hanby. Students alsowrote letters and enclosed stars from retired flags to thank those who serve our country. The project concluded with a trip to the post office to see their package off. “This was such a wonderful project that brought two classes together and taught cooperation, teamwork and compassion,” said Ms. Bailey.
