Between Nov. 4-Nov. 22, Pine River Area Elementary held it's third annual Thanksgiving food drive and collected non-perishable food items to make Thanksgiving meals for Pine River families. On Nov. 27 Pine River Area Elementary School At-Risk School Success Worker Barbara Sicoli, Pine River Area Schools Behavior Management/Safety Coordinator Marc Dennis and paraprofessional Andrew Denike were covered with silly string or gelatin as a student reward for collecting the food.
