Master Sgt. Schaefer takes a question during a kick-off assembly at Lampeter Elementary School.

Lampeter Elementary School students plan to provide deployed military personnel with a sweet taste of home this spring. Kindergartners, first graders, and second graders will be writing letters and drawing pictures to send to service members who are stationed around the world. This patriotic activity is part of the school’s annual service learning project, which this year is focused on patriotism.

The service learning project officially kicked off on March 29 with special assemblies. Master Sergeant Adam Schaefer, an U.S. Army combat medic and L-S parent, explained how much students' notes will mean to men and women who can’t be at home because they are protecting our country. He also talked about what deployed life is like and answered many questions, including “Do you have a tank?" and “Were there snakes where you were stationed?”.

After the assemblies, many students and teachers paused at the Wall of Honor, a collection of photographs students brought from home to pay tribute to their family and friends who serve or have served. The students will certainly have these heroes on their minds as they create their special notes.

The Lampeter Elementary Service Learning Project runs through April 12, 2019. It is sponsored by the Lampeter Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
