Volunteers from U.S. Army Garrison Alaska, Fort Greely partnered with the teachers and students of Delta Elementary School Feb. 19 to assist with classroom activities.
Three Soldiers and two Police Officers provided one-on-one reading opportunities and assisted with quizzes and sight word games.
"Volunteers from Fort Greely bring the community closer together," said Delta Elementary School Principal Bill Johnson. "The kids love seeing uniforms in the school and the volunteers enhance the educational experience and help build partnerships.
Volunteer school engagements are just one of the multiple events that are planned under Fort Greely's Adopt-A-School program. The Fort Greely AAS program contributes military resources and services in order to increase public awareness of the Army's mission and to foster good relations between the military and the communities they reside in.
