Reading in Classrooms

- 10/17/2017

We would love if any Vet's or active duty military members could read to our
students on Friday, November 10th.
The agenda is as follows:
8:00 am- Arrival at Willard Elementary, breakfast in lunchroom/visit with
fellow vets
8:25 am- Walk the halls of the school, students welcoming visitors
8:30-9:00  Read to classrooms, bring an artifact(s) to show students,
questions from students

We would love a military member for each classroom, (17 classrooms) or we
can combine some classrooms.
Unfortunately Nick Ashenfelter's unit is now in Texas so we do not have this
connection anymore. We are so thankful we have your help and support.
The students always love the uniforms, stories, and artifacts that you share
on Veteran's Day.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Thank you,
Sherry Thompkins
