Montessori students hear from veterans, assemble care packages


Students at Rockford's Montessori Private Academy celebrated Veterans Day by honoring those who served in the past and those currently serving overseas.

Students heard from a Civil War historical reenactor and veterans from WWII and the war in Afghanistan on Monday. The speakers shared stories and memorabilia from their times in the service.

Care packages were also assembled for troops currently serving overseas. Students, families, staff, and friends of the academy donated all of the items, and students assembled, addressed, and organized the packages to be sent overseas.
