From January 18th to 30th, the Candalaria community will hold our annual "Warm Hands, Warm Feet, Warm Hearts" donation drive. Your donation goes to Helping Hands Resources in Salem to provide for families in need. Items of warmth such as gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, blankets, etc., are accepted.
We will be donating items that have been left in our Lost and Found, so please be sure to check there if your child is missing any clothing items. ALL Lost and Found items will be either donated or discarded.
Bins will be located in the foyer as you enter through the main doors. Please join us as we provide for families and students across the Salem area.
Help us support the Salvation Army and families in our community by filling your favorite team's barrel with food donations to help with a holiday meal. Bring your non-perishable food donations and fill your favorite teams' bucket from November 9th through 24th. Buckets are located just inside the main school entry. Buckets will be weighed at the end of the challenge to see which team wins!

Thank you for your Husky support and donations!
This Halloween, your child has a voluntary opportunity to make their Halloween night traditions be about more than just candy. We are participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, and have been learning about the power we have to help kids around the world -- children who need food, clean water or medicine, or who have been caught in natural disasters. UNICEF works to give these children healthier lives and brighter futures.
Your child can make a difference this Halloween by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF. Donations collected using the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box will buy lifesaving supplies for children in need. Visit trickortreatforunicef.org to learn more about how the donations kids collect on Halloween save and improve children's lives. Please return boxes to school on Monday, November 2nd. Boxes will be returned to room 11, (Fender/Westfall). We will collect coins via the UNICEF Trick or Treat boxes throughout the week and share the total donation given on Friday November 6th in an update note sent home.
Please look for the Trick-or-Treat boxes in your child's Thursday folder.
We appreciate the support of families who choose to participate.
The Candalaria 3rd-5th Team.
