On Veterans Day, Emily Snow, Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy’s (LYA) first grade secular teacher, and her students mobilized the school to make cards for veterans. By the end of the day, LYA students from toddlers to 8th graders designed more than 150 cards for the veterans.
“The students enjoyed creating unique cards for veterans, who have given so much for our country,” Snow said. “It was a great way to teach the students the importance of Veterans Day and about honoring veterans.”
Snow personally delivered the cards to the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke, where they were very much appreciated.
