The Midvale 4th and 5th Grade Class along with Ms. Dorothy Pierce did a little something for the veterans to show their appreciation. They did this for their Veterans Day Program. The children started out just learning to each make a hat for themselves, but their teacher, Mrs. Nicole DeVries, thought it would be nice to make the veterans a hat. The kids diligently worked on a hat for a veteran of their choice. The kids started this activity at the beginning of October. It took the children about 4-5 hours and took Ms. Pierce about 2-3 hours to finish a knitted hat on a loom.
Ms. Dorothy Pierce had made about 40 hats. She is going to donate them to Idaho-N-Heroes, a non-profit organization which takes wounded warriors, men and women, on outdoor excursions like fishing and hunting trips. The children are excited about helping and recognizing a veteran.
