Campbellsville Elementary School students recently wrote letters to give to local veterans.
In Shirley Cox’s writing class, students are learning the proper way to write a letter.
Before writing their letters, students discussed the importance of Veterans Day, which is Saturday, Nov. 11.
Cox said veterans are people who served their country to give its citizens freedom. Veterans often wear uniforms, are part of a family and are made of strength, freedom, courage and bravery.
After their discussion, students wrote their letters, including a heading, greeting, body, closing and signature.
Students thanked the veterans for serving their country, protecting our freedoms and sacrificing time with their family and loved ones.
When completing their letters, students colored a picture to go along with them.
The letters will be given to veterans during a special ceremony at Campbellsville High School on Thursday, Nov. 9, at 9 a.m.
The ceremony is open to all veterans and community members, and is free and open to the public.
There will be a reception following the ceremony.
