The Miles Career and Technical Education (CTE) Project of the Week is “Care Packages for the Military.” Freshman members of the Family and Community Services class, Jada Book, Emma Eschberger, Tycie Lange, Rachel Niehues, and Cambree Schwartz set their goal to remember the military. On Veterans Day, they provided note cards and asked the Miles student body to write notes to members of the active military. They also provided a box of plastic military soldiers and asked the Miles students to take one as a reminder to think about those serving or have served in the military. At the Miles Cobblestone Christmas, they had a bake sale to raise money to buy items for care packages to be sent with the notes to troops out of Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene. Projects in the Family and Consumer Science class are designed and carried out by the students.
