Coming up for the holidays, beginning immediately, we will be collecting shoeboxes filled with gifts for Operation Christmas Child. This will be our holiday project, however, the shoeboxes need to be in no later than November 17th. We will be giving the shoeboxes to Bethany Church and they will be sending them to the drop off location. There is a flyer attached to this paper which gives specific directions. Please don’t be put off by the religious nature of this project. A student brought it to me and asked if we could participate and I felt it was a great idea regardless of the affiliation with Samaritan’s Purse. It is our hope that we can collect at least 150 shoeboxes for this worthwhile cause. Thank you in advance for your support. Please click the link below for more info!
On November 13th, at 9:30 am, Shoemaker School is celebrating Veteran’s Day. On this occasion, we are holding our monthly “Mustang Meeting” and having a special ceremony involving many different ways to help us remember and honor those who are serving in the military or who have served in the past. All of the grades have a special part in this ceremony. We realize that the students of Shoemaker School may have some veterans in their families and we would love for these special family members to come to school that morning. In order to ensure that we have the appropriate space to accommodate our visitors, we ask that you fill out the bottom of this form and return it to school no later than Monday November 9th. You can also RSVP Mr. Trexler at email@example.com. Please attach or cut and paste the information in the form below in the email. If you do not wish to attend the ceremony, you do not have to return the form or RSVP.
This year we will need your help. We would like to have a slide show presentation that includes pictures of our Shoemaker veterans. This would include family pictures, old military pictures and anything you can find that represents your soldier. We believe by putting a face to the names shown the Shoemaker family will be able to better recognize the sacrifice these brave soldiers have made.
Please send all scanned (No originals please. I will not be able to get them back to you) pictures to Mr. Trexler at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you have the name of the veteran, the branch in which they served, and in what war (if any) they fought. In order to have your picture in the presentation, send the picture to Mr. Trexler by November 9th. If you do not have a picture of your veteran, please send their information to the same address and they will be represented with their name and branch.
