Pine Tree Academy elementary students visited Horizons Assisted Living and Rehab Center. The students sang, played instruments, and then handed out ornaments to the residents. A special treat was seeing Donna Cooper who was a former elementary vice principal and teacher.
The tallying has been done and the numbers are in - 654 items have been collected for the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program!
Now I know you're wondering how the numbers broke down, so here goes.
First Place with 302 items - Grade 3 & 4 (styrofoam snowman)
Second Place with 224 items - Grade 7 & 8 (Christmas Story Movie Flagpole)
Third Place with 32 items - Grade 12 (2 doors - Chimney WWI truce; Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer)
Maine Christmas Door - 43 items (13 items came in after the votes were counted)
Olaf and Snowflakes - 29 items
Forest of Reindeer - 24 items
In an effort to keep Mrs. Tyson's class from winning (for the 5th year in a row) many other classrooms pooled their resources and donated their food to the styrofoam snowman. Better luck next year Mrs. T!
Let the rivalry continue next year...
It’s that time of year again when the Prek/Kindergarten Class begins their campaign to collect food for the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program and that means … Christmas Door Decorating Contest!
That’s right, the door decorating at Pine Tree Academy is in full swing and the annual food drive has kicked off. Boxes are full of canned goods and other items.
Doors include Snowmen, Reindeer, Christmas Trees, Nativity Scenes, Snowflakes, Flagpoles, and even Olaf from Frozen is making an appearance.
SO … swing on by, check out the doors, and vote for your favorites by putting non-perishable food items in the boxes next to the door. It’s a fun time of year and we’d love to share the excitement with YOU! There are only 2 days left!
