SW celebrates 100 days of school

Following a few ice and snow days last week, South Winn Elementary/Middle School was able to celebrate it 100th Day of School in an unconventional way – the opportunity to “pie” Principal Barb Schwamman and middle school social studies teacher Mike Johnson on Friday.

Prior to putting the pie in Mrs. Schwamman’s face, seventh-grader Austin Tieskoetter stated, “That was the best $21 I ever spent.”

School secretary Lenna Cummings spent just $5 but seemed to thoroughly enjoy planting the whipped cream pie in Johnson’s face.

Earlier in January, the middle school Student Council devised a plan to have students in preschool through eighth grade donate money to the Calmar Food Pantry. For each dollar donated, students and staff could put their names into a drawing for the chance to “pie” someone.

Initially the goal was $100 to pie Mr. Johnson, but more incentives were added —$200 for Mrs. Schwamman and $500 for Superintendent Chris Hoover.

In all students raised $632, which in turn is equivalent to nearly $6,000, according to Johnson with the food pantry’s bulk food rates.
