Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently made holiday and thank you cards for soldiers.
Lydia Rakes, who works with AmeriCorps at CES, asked students to make cards to give to Military Missions. The organization, headquartered in Lexington, sends care packages to active duty soldiers.
After students finished their cards, Rakes delivered them to Military Missions to be included in the packages.
Wings Express is a program to help students with homework and other activities. Students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.
CES Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays for activities.
Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.
About 90 students will participate in the Wings Express program.
Amanda Barnett is Wings Express director.
