Ever Wanted to be a Genie?

Have you ever wanted to grant a wish?

Now you can!

Malletts Bay School is branching out to offer help to children affected by Hurricane Sandy; a tree in the school’s lobby has been gloriously transformed into a “giving tree” strung with “wishes” from children who lost everything in the historic storm. Community members who are interested in fulfilling any of the wishes are invited to select one from the giving tree. Granted wishes may be wrapped and dropped off at MBS by Friday, December 14 with the gift tag attached to assist in delivery to the correct recipient.

Malletts Bay School’s giving tree strung with wishes

Working with the New York City Department of Education and JetBlue, MBS staff members are working to deliver the gifts to the New York City area in late December.

If you would like more information or are interested in granting a wish, please contact MBS Principal Julie Benay at or call (802) 264-5900.

Remember that Malletts Bay School’s “The Buzz” newsletter can be found on the the school’s website, and remember that Colchester School District posts a district-wide calendar of events, as well!
