Our e-term symposium, Band of Brothers, incorporates watching the documentary about Easy Company, a group of soldiers who were together from basic training to D-Day to the Battle of the Bulge during the allied takeover of Hitler’s stronghold, along with personal interviews of active guardsmen, and a web-cam visit with SSG McMurtrey currently serving in Afghanistan.

Our students are writing letters to send to our troops and assembling care packages of items donated by the public.  They are looking for donations of personal care items, snacks, small toys, and other items to put in these care packages.  Donations may be brought to the school and marked “Band of Brothers”.
