This week Ms. Gilder's 4th Grade class spent a morning at the L.A. Jewish Home working with residents to assemble toiletry kits for homeless veterans and write thank you cards in advance of Veterans Day in November. This inter-generational service project prompted a number of residents to share their personal stories of military service with the 4th graders. which made the activity even more personal and important.
