Minnesauke Elementary School students in Daniel Petruzzi's class employed their creative writing skills to brighten the days of a district alumnus serving the country.

Putting pen to paper, the sixth-graders drafted letters to PFC Matthew Kletzel, a Ward Melville Class of 2015 graduate who is currently serving in the Army. The letters expressed the students’ gratitude for PFC Kletzel’s service and extended him well wishes. In addition to writing letters, many students donated items for a care package, and other classes volunteered to write messages of appreciation to the members of PFC Kletzel’s unit.
