Blountstown Elementary School has teamed up with Lt. Col. Rhett Jeppson (pictured) to help students in need of school supplies in Afghanistan.
After the Thanksgiving holidays, B.E.S. students brought in various items such as paper, crayons, pens and pencils to help supply newly rebuilt schools in that war torn country. Lt. Col. Jeppson is returning to Afghanistan and will be sure that the supplies get to the schools that need them most.
Fourth grade students also included some cards and letters to add a little Christmas cheer for the American soldiers serving over there who will not be home for the holidays.
