ILMS 8th grade students made holiday treats as a sweet gesture for staff and other students to end the grading period. 
Just before Christmas break some 8th graders collaborated to make caramel corn, chocolate covered cookies, Christmas party mix, "puppy chow" and fudge in class. 
They researched the recipes and followed the instructions to make the snacks, then bagged them up and passed them out to friends and favorite staff members as presents. 
The quick project is part of the middle school's focus on the 40 Developmental Assets and a way to demonstrate to students that a little effort on your part can make another person's day!
