Operation Gratitude

Recently, Lutheran Schools united in celebration across the country.  National Lutheran Schools Week was celebrated with fun dress-up themes, virtual assemblies, games, video devotionals, and more!  This year’s theme was “Sent to Serve.”  After being reminded of so many who serve around us, here at St. John’s and in our families each day, the students had a chance to serve a special group of people… our military.  

Operation Gratitude sends thousands of care packages each year to deployed troops, veterans, new recruits and first responders, and a personal letter is often the most cherished part of that care package.  Each student had the opportunity to write a personal note of thanks and encouragement to a soldier hero.   Students in grades K-8 participated in this service project, but here are a few pics of some 2nd graders and their letters.
