Dear PS 101 Families:
Please be advised of our new fun School Spirit idea for our brave and courageous troops. To ensure Service in our Schools, we will salute our Veterans with a candy sweet treat delivery for those serving in active military. PS 101 will partake in this venture to deliver our candy donations and class cards to a drop-off site in Brooklyn. This reputable drop-off site will ensure a timely and accurate delivery to troops serving our country. Veterans all over will appreciate our acknowledgement of service by donating sweet treats to active members in the military.
Halloween generates and over-abundance amount of candy purchased and trick-or-treated on the ghostly day in October. With so much, we want to empower our students and their families to donate any candy and purchase donations of candy to ship to our troops. In addition to the candy collection, ALL CLASSES will participate in a writing activity and create a class card of appreciation to include in our PS 101 deliveries.
Our Little Lighthouse Team will use this first Service in Schools project as their first endeavor with daily morning collections and the creation of a CANDY COLLECTION BIN/BOX at the front door upon meeting and greeting fellow students each day.
Your Role As Parents/Guardians:
Please donate any candies, sweets and treats-extra Halloween candy from your trick-or-treating adventures or purchased Halloween candies. Explain to your child, these candies and sweets for troops away from home may brighten their day and lift their spirits. We want to thank our active members for their commitment, sacrifice in serving our country and ensuring our freedom in the United States of America.
