Somers health teacher, Kathy Kelton, has a son named Jonathan who has served as an Army Ranger He gave our SIS Teachers the name of Captain Mark Searles.
Captain Searles has 65 men in his three platoons. Mrs. DeBellis, Mrs. Mallon and Mrs. King’s classes made 65 care packages stuffed with hand cream, Chapstick, magazines, cookies, candy, power bars, soap, and protein bars. The entire fifth grade donated these items.
Along with each care package was a hand written note from a student. The boxes will be shipped out to Afghanistan this weekend. The PTA has offered to cover the shipping costs.
