Students get hyped for the Super Bowl, donate to a good cause

Feb 1, 2019

Before heading home for the big game, students at several Dartmouth schools celebrated a lot more than the Patriots entering the Super Bowl.

At Dartmouth Middle School, students celebrated a week of raising food donations through a “SouperBowl of Caring” fundraiser. Students brought in hundreds of canned goods to donate to the Dartmouth Council on Aging’s food pantry.

Students also dressed their football best as part of the school’s spirit day, to root on the home team.

Potter Elementary Students participated in their own “SuperBowl of Caring,” which is an annual tradition at the school. On Feb. 1, a school-wide rally calculated the final total of canned food brought in: 2,519 cans.

Assistant Principal Rick Porter used the assembly to reinforce the importance of teamwork by playing various clips from football heroes.
