Candy for Art

Mrs. Gale's 4th & 5th grade art classes are working on a Veteran’s day project to bring to the Shakopee Vet Clinic. She plans to have the students do a candy drive and write messages on the labels to put on the candy. For example, the students could walk an extra block or bring in left over candy that was not handed out. She would like donations before Nov. 6th. Mrs. Gale thanks you for your help!
