Post Halloween Candy Drive

We are thrilled to announce that we’ve teamed up with Forest Hill Orthodontics to join their Swap your Sweets Candy Drive. At the Junior School, from Nov. 1st to Nov. 9th we will be collecting all extra or leftover candy from Halloween in a box in the Gathering Space. For every pound of donated candy, Forest Hill Orthodontics will donate one dollar to their JACKPOT. The school who brings in the most candy will win the entire jackpot up to a maximum of $1000. The candy will be donated to less fortunate children overseas. Some of these children have never had candy before. This is a great way to save your teeth and share sweet treats with others.
