Kind Kids Club donates supplies in honor of Military Appreciation Month!

In Honor of Military Appreciation Month, Suzanne Alexander's kindergarten class and Brenda Bresadola's first graders donated supplies to the Gregory J. Harris Military Courtesy Room at the Syracuse Hancock Airport.  They spent the day on May 19th learning about the military from volunteers like Mrs. Alexander's daughter, Rox.  

Rox presented to students about life in the army, students participated in a mock Basic Training Obstacle Course and the children even enjoyed sampling MRE's (food that the military uses while in combat or training).  An awesome day for everyone involved!
