“Dear Veteran Letters Being Penned at St. Charles College
As part of a letter writing unit in Literacy studies, students in teacher Sarah Bock’s grade seven class at St. Charles College are writing war veterans.
The students are writing the letters in an effort to show veterans why there are valued. The unit ties in nicely to the Remembrance Day theme.
Bock says in the past, her students have written troops in combat but she thought it would be an interesting twist to write veterans who have served in the past.
Once completed and assessed, the letters will be mailed out to veterans listed on the Veteran Affairs website through a campaign called “Postcards for Peace.”
