West Seattle schools: Schmitz Park students donate Halloween candy

Those boxes photographed at Schmitz Park Elementary contain 700 pounds of candy collected after Halloween. The SP P.E. teacher, Carole Sealey, organized the drive for “Operation Stocking Stuffers,” with beneficiaries including troops serving away from home during the holidays. Ms. Sealey says, “The kids did an amazing job and I am so proud of them.”

    Way to go students! It was really amazing to see the change in attitude toward the candy when the kids got excited about the competition. Glad it’s going to such a great cause.

    Glad the kids won’t be eating that. There is ultimately a lot of waste after Halloween, so hopefully this indeed gets to their destination.

    So glad the school started this!! The kids seemed plenty happy to give up their loot as soon as a friendly competition was in place :) Hooray!

    I don’t suppose they’d like more, would they? I have TONS that I’d love to “get rid of”.

    We gave our kids a few days to pig out, then tossed the rest in the garbage. It’s just crap calories.

Sorry, comment time is over.
