October 23, 2010 is Make a Difference Day. This lesson plan, Write from the Heart, written by Rachel May, NNC Professional School Couselor, details a letter writing campaign with the letters being delivered to servicemen and women overseas. Students learn/reinforce their letter writing skills while participating in this character education activity that focuses on community service.
