International Day of the Girl Candy Grams

Le Anh Metzger, Writer

Mayfield celebrated the International Day of the Girl with sweets. This day was established in 2012 by the United Nations General Assembly to highlight the unique struggles that girls, in particular, face. Over 135 candy grams consisting of a few pieces of candy, a GLI sticker, and a notecard commemorating International Day of the Girl were delivered to students and teachers.
