Care package to Afghanistan
Ninth-graders at Chautauqua Lake Central School wrote letters and sent a care package to a 2009 graduate, Morgan Nelson, now a Specialist in the U.S. Army and serving in Afghanistan. He received the package in time for Christmas. The service project was a learning experience for their English class, as part of a study unit on the military. The students also spoke by Skype live video conferencing with a retired Marine. Showing their appreciation for Nelson’s service to the nation are (seated, from left) Jamy Bigelow and Jenna Wiemer; (kneeling) Samantha Herrington, Makayla Keefe, Makayla Witt and Taylor Howe; (standing) learning support teacher Ashley Muscarella, Michael West, Avery Webb, Holly Nelson, Kathy West, Ashleigh Scott, Jasmine Schofield and Delonte Fredrick. Gwen Mueller and Muscarella co-teach the English 9 class.
