During the week of Nov. 16-20, students at the Absarokee High School held a food drive. The Student Council sponsored this event to collect food for the Absarokee Food Bank. In an attempt to increase participation, the Student Council came up with the idea to have a competition. A box was placed by each teacher’s classroom. Students and staff donated non-perishable food items into these boxes. The three teachers with the most food in their boxes got the “prize” of being hit in the face with banana cream pies.

A total of 628 food items were collected overall. The teachers with the most donations were Chris Gunderson, Gregg Feddes and Rob Yates. On Monday, Nov. 23, these three lucky guys were hit in the face with banana cream pies made by Keagan Sandlin. The pies were thrown by the Students of the Quarter Hattie Baver and Brody Pelton, and by another teacher Mrs. Reissig.

The entire student body watched the teachers get pied, which made for a very funny end of the day. Mr. Gunderson, Mr. Feddes and Mr. Yates were great sports.
