Operation Forget Me Not






TO:            Students, Parents, Faculty, & Staff

FROM:        Mrs. Grube  and  Mrs. Benedetto

SUBJECT:   “Operation Forget Me Not” – Military Care Package Effort

DATE:         School Year 2017 - 2018


We will continue to send care packages from our school to military personnel stationed around world.  During the course of time, more than 300 packages have been shipped from our school.  The effort began as a means for students to acknowledge those everyday heroes among us who keep us safe; firefighters, police officers, emergency personnel, and more.  It continued as a means to do a random act of kindness for others that you might not even know, but that kind act can mean the world of difference to someone so far from home.


If you have someone you would like a package sent to who is stationed overseas, forward the APO address to Mrs. Grube at  If you are motivated to contribute toward this effort, please drop off any item below to our main office at school.  We will mail care packages as soon as there is enough to fill a box!  Thanks to all for your continued support: since September 11, 2001.
