GEMS Second-Graders Send Sweet Thanks to Troops

Target 4 – Engaged Community Partners: FWSU staff and students will collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize ideas and learning with local, regional, state, and global partners to make a difference in their community, state, and world.

Action Step – Develop partnerships with global partners to carry out a project related to units of study.

The second grade Georgia Elementary School students in Mrs. Alspach’s class demonstrated their sweetness at the end of October by collecting candy that will be sent overseas to our men and women in uniform. During the weeks before Halloween, the children brought in bags of candy, and some students even donated candy from their own trick-or-treat bags.

Through the non-profit organization Boatsie’s Boxes in West Virginia, the candy will be used to stuff Holiday Stockings before being sent to those serving our country around the world.
