News from Marshwood Middle School
8th-grade Annual PJ and Book Drive
This is the 5th year that 8th graders have contributed to their local community. There is a worldwide Pajama Collection Program but MMS students wanted to support local families in need of pajamas and books at this time of year. They partnered with FairTide in Kittery. This year students collected 71 pairs of pajamas from newborn to adult and matched each with at least two books per pajama size. 8th graders were rewarded with a day of being able to wear their pajamas to school. During Language Arts classes, students were served hot chocolate by their teachers and shared some of their favorite books read in 2018. Marshwood Middle School was recognized in Fair Tide’s year-end newsletter for their donations. Families all over the seacoast benefitted from these donations.
