Honoring Our Veterans

Kaechele will be participating in two more experiences to honor and support our veterans. First, we will create a visual representation in our school’s hallway to honor men and women who have served our country in the past or who are currently serving but may not be able to attend our assembly. If interested in sending information for our visual representation, then complete the attached form and send to school. If you would like to honor more than one veteran, then please go to our KES website to print off additional forms using this link: Veterans Day brick. We will collect and display pictures until Friday, Nov. 16th. Second, our KES community will partner with Blue Star Families to collect items to be sent to our deployed troops and Liberation Veteran Services. If you would like to donate, then please send in items between Wednesday, October 31 and Friday, November 9th. Items to be collected are follows:

Personal Items (travel size)
Shampoo, conditioner
Hand/body lotion
Dental floss
“Wisps” (dental cleaners)
Gold Bond foot powder
Hand sanitizer

Powdered drink mixes like Gatorade, coffee, Kool-Aid, and Crystal Light
Healthy individual snack packs – nuts, dried fruit, beef jerky, fruit snacks, trail mix
Power bars and granola bars
Instant oatmeal
Pop tarts, crackers, cookies
Tuna/chicken in foil packages

Reading material
Crossword puzzle books

Leftover Halloween candy may also be collected and will be donated to a local veteran’s organization. Collection boxes will be located in the main hallway outside of the library.

We look forward to meeting and honoring our veterans during our assembly. We hope you will plan to join us.
