CBMS teachers listened to this earlier this week, and lots of dialogue was generated.

MONSTER THANKS for the Halloween Candy Donations! Randall and Elm Streets were blown away by the generous flow of candy that came in daily for two weeks! Over 200 lbs of candy from TBPS and CBMS were delivered to neighbors making for a very sweet night of Trick or Treating! It was wonderful to see all of your children on Halloween. Thank you for being such an amazing community and helping us make it a great Halloween. See you next year!
