Selden Middle School’s home and careers club recently assembled 277 non-food and allergy-friendly goodie bags as part of the worldwide Teal Pumpkin Project movement to create a safer, happier, and more inclusive Halloween for kids.
“The Teal Pumpkin Project is a great way to make trick-or-treating more inclusive and safer for our students living with food allergies and intolerances,” said Andrew Bennett, Principal of Selden Middle School. “I am thrilled to have our school participating in this worldwide movement and a huge thank you to the Selden Middle School faculty, staff, and students for their incredibly generous donations making this project a huge success!”
The goodie bags along with an additional 200 Halloween pencils and 200 Halloween plastic rings were given to the Newfield High School for their Trick or Treat street event.
