Background information

Niskayuna students have been writing to deployed Navy ships for the past 19 years. Students send holiday greetings to pen pal ships stationed in the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean.

Students send letters, colored banners, school pictures, homemade cookies, and more. They tell the sailors about their school and life in Niskayuna. They talk about sports, school clubs, projects, families, and academic subjects. They tell funny stories about their pets, but most of all, they tell the sailors how much they appreciate the jobs they are doing for our country. They offer to be good pen pals and ask the sailors to write back.
