After Halloween Fun


Do you collect so much Halloween candy that you still have leftovers at Easter? If so, here is a great way to put that extra candy to good use! The U.S. Military currently has hard working men and women stationed overseas. They would greatly appreciate a sweet snack. Starting today through next Monday, November 7th, our students and families can donate their extra Halloween candy (or any candy), and it will be sent overseas to our troops.

Not only is this a nice thing to do for our troops, but it will also get our students thinking about healthy choices. It is a healthy choice to only eat candy in moderation, and many of us get much more candy than can be eaten in moderation. So this is a great opportunity to share and focus on our health.

Thank you in advance for your kindness and thank you for thinking about healthy eating choices.


Here is a little peek at what we’ve been up to this week.


 We built our Wild Selves…


…and had some costume fun on Friday’s Spirit Day!

  1. Dear Mrs. Moore and Hugo,

    I just wanted to say that you guys are doing great with this Techie Kid thing! Hugo is so cute! What kind of cookies does he like? Also how old is Hugo? I have to ask one more time what does the word spam mean? I had a very good time in your class! Are you going to be teaching 3rd grade.
    Are you going to do that thing like put baskets of books and guess how much are in them? How come the 2nd graders didn’t get to vote what Hugo’s name would be?


    • Dear Maria,

      Thank you for always visiting and leaving quality comments! I asked Hugo what kind of cookies he likes and he told me chocolate chip. We don’t actually know how old Hugo is, but we were thinking that we could start counting now for how long he is the Techie Kids mascot. What do you think of that idea?

      Spam is when someone sends a message that you don’t really want to a lot of people. I’m not sure what schools or grades I’ll be teaching next year. I won’t be doing the book basket guessing, but Mrs. Hembree sure has some great ideas, doesn’t she? All of the Techie Kids were involved in different parts of picking Hugo’s name. You can remind me in class and we can talk about which part of the name picking you were a part of.

  2. Dear Mrs. Moore,

    I’m Ryan and I feel great about healthy eating choices. Each day you should eat at least one fruit or vegetable to be strong and live healthy. So have fun eating healthy.


    • Dear Ryan,

      Thanks for the comment! I agree that eating fruits and veggies is very important for growing strong and being healthy. In our house, we try to have a fruit with every meal and a vegetable at lunch and dinner.

  3. Dear Mrs. Moore,

    I’ve donated to the Purple Heart foundation and the U.S.A. military. I have donated clothing, candy, and toys. If everyone helps out, the military and poor people could have better lives, so help out and make a difference.

  4. Dear Mrs. Moore,

    Hello Mrs. Moore! I am in your 5th grade class that meets on Tuesdays. I think it is a great idea to eat healthy things. Candy can be good but is not good for you. And I have donated many things before candy and other things to help charity. Finally, I don’t really do much things for my Halloween traditions.

    Your Techie Kid Emma

    • Dear Emma,

      It is great that you think eating healthy food is good! You are right candy does taste good, but eating too much is not healthy. Good job! Donating candy and other things is really nice! So what do you do for Halloween?

  8. Dear Mrs. Moore,

    It’s so funny that we both like chocolate chip cookies!
    I think we should keep counting how old he is its a great idea! Oh thanks for leting me know what spam means so again its means someone sent you a messege and you dont like it? Well your a great teacher so I was asking what school you will be teaching next year. Beacause next year im gonna be in 3rd grade I cant believe im getting so old! Are you going to do anything like the book basket or no? Yes I really do think that she has a very good mind for ideas. Ok I would be more than happy to talk about it! Im in your class right now and im posting messeges.

    • Dear Maria,

      I’m happy to see a comment from you again! Thank you for the compliment. You are very kind! I don’t know what school I will be teaching at next year, but I hope I can keep some of the same classes. No, I won’t be doing a book basket in here, but that might be a good idea to share with Miss Fitch.

      Your pal,
      Mrs. Moore
