What’s scarier than not having enough Halloween candy for Trick-or-Treaters?
ANSWER: Having TOO MUCH CANDY leftover AFTER Halloween!


Get rid of this nightmare by donating your leftover Halloween candy.
STMS Student Council and the 3rd Grade will be collecting your LEFTOVER Halloween candy.
Also, did your kids get WAY TOO MANY treats this Halloween? Have them donate some of their abundance to those in need. 1/2 will go in the 3rd grade care packages for the Troops! Troops enjoy knowing our students are thinking of them and getting a taste of home while they are away.

1/2 will go to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance! Candy helps cancer patients alleviate dry mouth and helps them get rid of the metallic taste after chemotherapy treatments.

Bring WRAPPED candy to school November 1st—10th PLEASE do not buy additional candy, we are trying to be good stewards by collecting our over abundance. THANKS!
