House Impetus Members:

This week we will be having our first House service project! Friday during Student Choice in the Library Annex we will be making cards and letters of appreciation to send to the U.S. Military through Operation Gratitude. You will be paired with your buddy and together you will make several cards to send! We will provide construction paper and markers, but you are welcome to bring in anything else you wish to use to decorate your cards.

If you would like to learn more about Operation Gratitude, here is the link to their website:
