Dunwoody Elementary Participates in
The Bert Show's "The Big Thank You"

Last year, Dunwoody Elementary School participated in The Big Thank You for the Bert Show. The purpose of The Big Thank You is that every single soldier stationed or deployed outside the United States deserves to receive a letter of gratitude on Thanksgiving Day. DES wanted to give our troops a “Big Thank You” with a little taste of home this Thanksgiving. As part of the Skills Builder block, students created letters that were heartfelt, handwritten, original, and free of any political statements. The purpose of the letter is to express thanks to the military personnel currently deployed outside the United States. Students may include their mailing and/or e-mail address if they choose.
