Kindergarten, First and Second students at Kenton Elementary School made Christmas cards for a young soldier from Kenton that was deployed on Thanksgiving Day. 

Kenton High School Class of 2021 graduate Tyler Buxton flew overseas with other soldiers. 

The students learned the distance in miles that Kenton is from where they are deployed as well as the difference in time. 

The students made cards to share Christmas joy with Tyler and the other troops. 

All students received a toy soldier to be reminded of the joy they sent for Tyler on Christmas Day. 

They are on display as a way to remind the children over the following weeks before Christmas break about Tyler and the troops.
