Help Prevent Zombie Mouth!!
Dr. Stern and the staff of Gentle Dental Care in Hoboken, NJ, are once again hosting their annual Halloween Candy Buyback event from November 2nd through November 12th. The buyback offers a creative way to recycle the Halloween candy that can lead to kids’ cavities, and it’s a solution families can take to the bank. Gentle Dental Care is once again partnering with the national Halloween Candy Buyback program, which lets trick-or-treaters trade in their excess candy for cash. The mini-entrepreneurs can bring their candy to the dental office at 710 Washington Street and receive $1 per pound in exchange for their unopened, uneaten candy. Smaller children can choose a foam lightstick if they prefer. The candy will be be donated to the troops as part of Operation Gratitude.

CodeAdvantage Open House/ Coding Fair
Location: Hoboken Public Library, 500 Park Ave
Time: Monday, Nov 30th 5pm-6pm
Coding is the new language of the future but many people don’t know exactly what it is. Computer programming is much more than sitting at a computer and writing code – it involves critical thinking, creative expression, storytelling, and quite a bit of fun. Come learn more about coding and how your child can benefit from learning technology skills especially when they are in 1st-8th grade.
CodeAdvantage, a local organization, will be talking about the different ways to learn coding and will demo some interactive ways to get kids excited about coding including making modifications to the hugely popular Minecraft game, using drop and drag programming to get younger kids excited about Kodu and Scratch.
