TUESDAY

Good morning R.C. Waters!

Today is Tuesday, October 30, 2018

 

October 30 is “National Candy Corn Day.”  It appeared in the 1880's when it was made by the Wunderlee Candy Company, and was originally called "Chicken Feed."   There are different types of candy corn for different holidays and occasions. "Indian corn" has a chocolate brown end instead of the yellow, and is popular around Thanksgiving. During Christmas, "reindeer corn" with a red end and green center is popular. With Valentine's Daycomes "cupid corn", Independence Day has "freedom corn", and you can buy "bunny corn" during Easter. Twenty million pounds of candy corn are sold every year!  Happy National Candy Corn Day!

 

BIRTHDAYS

 

R.C. CAGE CARETAKERS

 

Speaking of RC, she will be lucky to spend time with a trio of 2nd graders from Mrs. Spangler’s class today.  They saved their DOJO points and once they reached 200 they bought the “Recess with RC” pass off the DOJO cart.  Way to go!

 

ROCKET PRIDE SHOUT-OUT
