On 9 November, sixteen Marines visited Triangle Elementary School in Prince William County outside the main gate of Quantico as part of the Adopt-A-School program. Once the Marines arrived at the school, they greeted students and helped them with their morning routine. During the day, Marines participated in activities in all grade levels at the school. Marines demonstrated how to do a proper push up as part of wellness stations in PE, helped Head Start students open their milk for breakfast, read to kindergartners, and presented good behavior certificates to 3rd graders. Triangle Elementary is just one of the schools that benefit from the program, which sends Marines to public schools to assist teachers and students and ultimately have a positive impact on the lives of students.
