Junior High Students are Serving the Community
The Junior High had 37 FCA and STUCO students that took time on Thanksgiving to serve food at the House of Hope. The students represented Pine Tree well as they volunteered their time to help others.
Junior High athletics are starting a canned food drive competition between 7th and 8th grade athletic classes. All food collected will go to the Hiway 80 Rescue mission.
