National Children’s Memorial Day: On the second Sunday in December each year, communities all over the country will be commemorating National Children’s Memorial Day. Woodstown High School invites our own community to join us on Sunday, December 11th at 7:00PM to remember our sons, daughters, and grandchildren who have gone before us. This annual ceremony will provide an opportunity to remember and reflect upon the lives of our beloved children of all ages. Please join us for this special opportunity to gather together as a community.
If you plan to attend and/or would like to provide a name to be remembered, please contact Mrs. Dina Strachan by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 856-769-0144 ext. 55241. Please provide the name of the person you would like to be remembered and the number of guests attending. You are welcome to bring a token of remembrance (a photograph, a memento, etc.) to be displayed during the ceremony, and an ornament to decorate our holiday line in the memorial garden.
Please help us spread the word to all of our Woodstown-Pilesgrove families and share this post.
Students of Service began their Holiday for Heroes campaign at the Veterans Day breakfast in the Middle School. We would now like to continue this throughout the entire school. The Social Studies Department will have the students sign cards and send messages to our soldiers overseas.
Students of Service would like the entire staff to write a card and send seasons greeting to our men and women who will not be home to celebrate during the holidays. Please put your cards in my mailbox by Friday December 9th so that I am able to send the package and goodies and they can arrive in time for the holiday.
Seventeen schools partner with "Red, White, and Blue Jeans for Veterans" raising over $7,000, filling eighty care packages, making three hundred fifty Veterans Day cards, serving thirty Dominos pizzas, delivering four butter cookie trays and sugar-free snack baskets, and awarding Canteen Coupons as Bingo prizes. Remaining funds are donated to the VA Hospital's Recreation Fund ensuring our veterans celebrate throughout the year!
During the past five years, our "Red, White, and Blue Jeans for Veterans" partnership raised over $30,000 in donations and care packages supporting our hospitalized heroes recreation! My friends and I have shared pizza with a soldier who stormed Omaha Beach, played Bingo with an "Old Grad" from West Point, and sat with a young US Marine battling ALS. Thank you for honoring our veterans service, appreciating their sacrifices, and understanding one of the greatest casualties of having served is being forgotten.
