Students and staff at LaSalle Intermediate took time to honor those that are currently serving in the US Military.
Each homeroom class decorated a pillowcase for soldiers who are serving overseas.
Staff members got in on the action by decorating a few of their own.
These pillowcases are covered with thank you messages for the soldiers.
7th grader Adam Soisson helped organize the event after talking with his mother, an army lieutenant colonel who is currently serving in Kuwait. "She said that her worst memory there is the first day that she got there. In the morning it was 120 degrees. So you can imagine with all that armor on that you'd get pretty sweaty. And you know they're sleeping on pillowcases every night so they'd get pretty sweaty too," he said. “I feel that it is great to talk to the soldiers and they can tell that we support them."
Adam said the school will send about 100 pillowcases to US soldiers.
