Leal students send sweet treats to troops

Leal Middle School P.E. coaches would like to give a big thank you to all the athletes and students who donated their Halloween candy for our troops. 

The students donated a whopping total of 110 pounds of candy!

“The P.E. coaching staff just wanted to teach the students empathy and provide them an opportunity to show gratitude to our brave men and women who fight for our freedoms,” Leal Middle School Athletic Coordinator Margarita Garcia said.  

The candy will be sent to military troops and veterans for a sweet treat, through Soldiers' Angels, which organizes local efforts to send care packages to military personnel. 

“Since we will be celebrating Veterans Day on Nov. 11, a bulletin board was also created to honor all the veterans,” Garcia added. “The board highlights our Leal teachers who currently or served in the military.”
