Dear Gillispie Parents,

The Serve. Lead. Succeed Team is hosting a week full of events that will honor the men and women of our military and benefit the Armed Services YMCA of San Diego. Students in Grades K-6 will have the opportunity to participate in various activities starting next week during lunch recesses.

Monday, May 20, is American Handprint Day. Students will decorate their hands with red, white, and blue paint and stamp them on a piece of paper to create a patriotic display. On Tuesday, May 21, 4th-6th grade students will have the opportunity to submit a special thank you note or message to our troops. Wednesday, May 22, is Red, White, and Blue Day. Your child is encouraged to come to school dressed in red, white, and blue attire. We will also be covering the playground ramp handrails with red, white, and blue ribbons during lunch recess. Thursday, May 23, is Bead Bracelet Day. Students can design a special patriotic bracelet that can be worn to honor our troops. For our final event, we are challenging students to participate in the Military Fitness Challenge on Friday, May 24. We ask that all students who would like to participate turn in the registration form they received this week and a suggested donation of $5.00 by Wednesday, May 23.  All donations go directly to support the amazing programs that the Armed Services YMCA provides for our military and their families. We appreciate your support!

Thank you,
Gia M. and Allegra F.
