Sending Holiday Wishes

As the holiday season gets underway, Babylon Elementary School is helping to brighten the lives of several individuals, both locally and afar.

As part of the Adopt-a-Soldier program, the school has adopted nine soldiers who are currently serving abroad or at home. Throughout the year, the students and staff will be sending packages to these individuals, each of whom has a personal connection to Babylon. This December, the classes created personalized artwork and letters for the recipients, extending gratitude for their service. Teaming up with the Blue Ribbon Moms program, the school also provided care packages to three deployed soldiers.

“It is our hope that the soldiers are excited to receive our packages and feel a connection to home during the holiday season,” said Principal Jessica Kemler.

The school is also coordinating a warm coat drive and a giving tree for local families in need.
