Next they made Christmas cards using this card maker from abcya.com. Before making them, we discussed how our military serves our country every day of the year, even on holidays. Students were asked to keep our service men and women in mind as they created their cards. Enjoy their work below!
Merry Christmas to our service men and women! Thank you for your dedication to our country!
