Mrs. Nicosia’s class facilitated a service learning project this past week.
Called “Treats for Troops,” the 4th-graders collected Halloween candy to be sent overseas for the holidays! The students created signs to alert everyone at West Elementary to this event, and a buzz was created during morning newscasts!
The drive was an enormous success, bringing in 1,018 pounds of candy! It is also a sweet way of saying “thank you” to our troops. The candy will be collected by the Blue Star Mothers group during the schools Veterans Day luncheon on Thursday.
