              10th Annual Halloween Candy Give Back


Dear 5th Grade Parents,

     Once again this year Millis D.A.R.E. is proud to sponsor the 10th Annual Candy Give Back Program. The candy drive will benefit the Birthday Wishes charity which provides birthday parties for more than 450 children in homeless shelters and transitional housing around Massachusetts. This charity was brought to the D.A.R.E. program’s attention by the 5th grade teachers nine years ago and continues to be a great way for Millis students to help out.  

     5th graders who wish to participate will bring Halloween candy to school and turn it in to their homeroom teacher.  Children who donate candy will be eligible to enter a raffle for a RIDE ALONG with Officer Bickford.

     If your child wishes to participate, please fill out the lower portion of this form and turn it in with the candy by Friday, November 4th.  The bottom half of the form will be entered into the raffle and one 5th grader will win the ride along.

     We will also be using the candy to do an activity in the 5th grade math classes. The students will be estimating how many pounds of candy each HR donated then they will weigh the bags. The student who has the closest estimate to the actual total weight of the candy will also win the ride along.

    The two 5th grade winners will do the ride along together and it will be scheduled at your convenience. If your child wins the ride along, a permission slip will be sent home. If your child does not wish to enter the raffle for the ride along, candy donations would still be appreciated!  Let’s beat the all time total of 199lbs!!!


Thank You,

Officer Dale Bickford

 5th Grade Team
