The students recently completed a unit on kindness, and concluded with a project to send care packages to troops overseas.
Teachers Kerri Dominguez, Rosa Molina and Crystal Ziller had their students conduct research to determine the kinds of items soldiers need and want.
The students then set about collecting the items, and divided the items into 10 boxes. Reportedly, each branch of the military was sent one box of snack items and one box of toiletry items from the Chaparral second-graders.
The students also wrote letters thanking the troops for their service to our country.
