Bonner Elementary students send thanks to troops, first responders

As the nation prepares to mark the 11th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, students at Bonner Elementary are honoring first responders and the men and women serving in our armed forces.

Students in first through fifth grade decorated brown paper bags that will be filled with candy then sent to members of the military, veterans, and first responders. The students also wrote letters thanking the men and women for their service to our country.

Bonner Elementary is one of several schools across the U.S. participating in Operation Goody Bag’s “Commit to Color” project which hopes to send 50,000 decorated goody bags and thank you notes to our troops and first responders.

Teachers and staff at Bonner are also donating money to organize a breakfast for the firefighters at Station 29 for their service to the school.
