Spotlight on Canyon Creek Elementary ~ Paying it Forward Campaign and Fort Hood Soldiers

 Spotlight on Canyon Creek Elementary~Pay It Forward~Fort Hood Soldiers

 

Spotlight on Canyon Creek Elementary and Ft. Hood Canyon Creek Elementary in NW Austin went all out for their “Pay It Forward” campaign. They chose to make a difference for troops deploying to Afghanistan from Fort Hood, TX by making individual packages for the soldiers.

Barbara Cowman was in charge of the campaign (Barbara has a third grader at Canyon Creek Elementary). To help the children understand how military people serve they invited Tina Zientek, U.S. Air Force, Lieutenant Colonel, Amy Hall, Mental health Specialist in the National Guard from 1989-1994 (both Canyon Creek residents) and James LaVelle, Lieutenant, U.S. Navy to speak to the students.

Paying it forward

Excitement built and the children brought in snacks, drink powders, socks and flashlights. They decorated paper sacks which the items were delivered in and wrote a personal thank you to the soldiers. Barbara Cowan and Ann Okamura, with a young soldiers help, delivered the packages to the USO who in turn delivered them to the soldiers as they boarded their plane.

What a difference these children have made for the soldiers headed off for a tour in Afghanistan! Just one more lesson in giving back that happens all year long in Canyon Creek Elementary. Education is much more than learning your ABC’s. Learning to be productive and caring to others is a lesson learned by example and being exposed to the wonderful sense of happiness and self-confidence you feel when you do something for others.

Thank you Canyon Creek Elementary staff, parents and students for “Paying it Forward” to the soldiers at Fort Hood who deployed to Afghanistan!
