Fernbrook 2nd Grade Collects Candy for a Cause


Thanksgiving is a time to show gratitude for what we have and spend time with those who matter most. Fernbrook 2nd Grade Teacher Miss Reed McMurray and her students decided to do something special this year. Recognizing that many soldiers may have missed out on their chance to get Halloween candy, they collected unwanted candy around their school to send to members of our armed forces. Students used their math skills to sort and count the candy to give each solider a candy report. They then sent the candy off to the troops to show them their appreciation for their service.


Thank you Fernbrook 2nd Grade students for your generosity, kindness, and compassion for our military! To members of our armed forces in our community and beyond, thank you for your continued service and protection.
