SUPPORT THE TROOPS:
From Centre Elementary School
Items will be collected November 1st -15th
Students and staff at Centre Elementary School would like to make this holiday season special for our soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Kyle Greene, our school nurse's son and a former student at Centre School, has just been deployed and will be gone for 6-8 months. We would like to send Kyle and his unit a care package to let them know we will be thinking of them during their time away from their families and friends, especially during the holidays.
