Letters Home
A Remembrance Day 1999 Project
by the New Horizons School Grades 4/5 Class

The Grades 4/5 Class teacher told a moving story about her Grandfather who was seriously wounded at Vimy Ridge. The students were encouraged to write a poem or letter about Remembrance Day. Some of the students chose to write a letter home to their parents, as if they were soldiers fighting on the front, while others chose to write poems about Remembrance Day.

        Dear Mom and Dad,

        The Allied Force aren't doing too well. I've been moved to a trench hole in Europe because all the other people that were in the trench holes died.

        I promise I will come home safe.

        your son,

        [Submitted by Brandon]
