So Sweet, We Can Taste It!
Just as our school's name pays tribute to our nation's heroes, so do the people who walk the halls each day. This year over 350lbs of candy was donated to Operation Gratitude, an organization whose main goal is to remember the men and women who serve and protect our country.
Students and staff were encouraged to donate Halloween candy last week as a sweet gesture of our appreciation to those in the military. As the candy poured in, we were reminded of just how sweet the members of our school are. It is through giving after all that one truly receives. Island Trees has certainly warmed the hearts of many.
A special thank you goes to Mrs. Harouche for delivering every pound of candy on our behalf. Also, thank you to the students and staff at Stokes Elementary for partnering with us for this special collection!
