Project Soldier is an idea my mother and I had for my brother’s 5th grade class. We organized his entire class to write letters of encouragement and support to the soldiers over seas. We make flyers and collect the letters to send to the troops. I believe this will have a good effect and raise awareness to the children at Turtle Rock Elementary and our community. It is important to have compassion for others I think that by writing letters to the soldiers the children will be more mindful of other people.
