This school year, Mrs. Marcolina's 5th grade class has been corresponding with Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Gibbons, Mrs. Memmelaar's nephew who is stationed in Afghanistan.  On Monday, March 1st, the class packed and sent out 21 boxes of food items, toiletries, books, magazines, and other supplies to Matt and his buddies!  The packages, which also included over 75 letters, were carefully hand packed by the students with help from Mrs. Memmelaar, Ms. Peluso, and parent volunteers.  The students are now looking forward to Matt's return to the USA in May.
