Students at the Harrison Middle School recently completed a celebration of Geography Awareness Week. This year’s theme was Geography: An Adventure in Our Community. Students were involved in many activities throughout the week to help them improve their geographic literacy. In addition, they focus on a service learning project each year to demonstrate good citizenship.
The beneficiary of this year’s service project was the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry. The student body collected coins (nickels, dimes, and quarters) for five days to donate to the pantry. A check for $730 was presented to Pantry Manager Sue Rowe to help people in need in Yarmouth. Geography Awareness Week is an annual event sponsored by National Geographic throughout the country.
