The students of Montgomery Avenue School in West Pittston are holding a food drive. The food will be donated to the Food Pantry of the First United Methodist Church in West Pittston. The food pantry has been helping an average of 34 families. The members of the Mission Committee of the First United Methodist Church wish to thank everyone for their help in providing food for needy families. The Thanksgiving Recess will begin on Thursday, November 27, 2008. Schools will resume on Tuesday, December 2, 2008. Happy Thanksgiving! The Montgomery Avenue PTO will hold their regular scheduled meeting on Tuesday, December 2, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria. All parents are welcome to attend. The Thanksgiving food drive was a big success. A big thank you goes out to all the parents that donated to this worthy cause. The food collected is given to the food pantry at the United Methodist Church in West Pittston. We would like to thank the PTO for sponsoring a pizza party for the class with the most can goods collected. Parents can continue to send in their can goods for the next food collection which will be given to the Methodist Church on Friday, December 19, 2008. Keep sending in the can goods. Another pizza party will be given to the class that sends in the most can goods for the Christmas time collection by our PTO.
