Assignments Due


With it being Veterans Day this week, what a wonderful time to remember and honor our military personnel that will be away from their families this holiday season. This week we will be working on a communication assignment. We will be making holiday cards for our service people and we’ll be working through the militaryholidaycardchallenge.com website. Feel free to get creative through the use of crayons, colored pencils, markers, highlighters, etc. You’re all very creative; now is the time to allow your creativity to shine! 🙂 They have some standards for their cards or letters and they will be your instructions for this assignment. Remember, neatness counts!

1. Please address the card to “Dear Warrior”. Be respectful and polite.

2. Write a holiday greeting, keeping in mind that our Troops are diverse in their holiday practices and beliefs.

3. Write a personal note. For example: How do you celebrate the holidays? What are your family memories of holidays?

4. Sign your first name ONLY and the town and state where you live.

5. If you are or have been in the Military, or a member of a club, or an elected official or a First Responder, please consider including that information in your Card.

6. If your card is homemade, please keep the size to no larger than an 8 x 11 size paper folded in half.

***You need to turn in AT LEAST 3 cards by the end of class on Wednesday, November 10th. These will be graded based on you following the project details. Also keep in mind, would you be proud to have them delivered to YOUR family? These individuals put their lives on the line to protect ours, put your time and effort into these cards.
