Chester Elementary School students participated in the Treats for Troops candy collection program.

Students donated leftover Halloween candy that will be sent to Chester High graduates that serve in the military in their Christmas care packages.

The Expanded Learning After School Program launched the project by making the collection box, recording a video message to explain the project to their peers, and encouraging the student body to make donations.
