The students of Auten Road Intermediate School’s Team 5G – Diane Lyons’s and Kerry MacDonald’s homerooms – and Team 5H – Donna Biddulph’s and Elise Newton’s homerooms – challenged each other to collect the most cans of food in the seventh annual Soup-er Bowl Collection.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the competition looked different this year. About 50% of the students participate in a hybrid model where they are in-person at school twice a week, while the other half learns completely virtually from home.
To accommodate this into the collection, cans were not only collected in class, but also through contact-free drop boxes placed outside the main entrance of the school.
Team 5G&H’s families donated 491 food items for Hillsborough food pantry.
The ARIS Soup-er Bowl victors were Team 5G Chiefs.
