Lunch with principal


All fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders at Pine River-Backus Elementary School who made the honor roll for both first and second quarters enjoyed “Lunch with the Principal” last week on the stage in the Commons. Students were served their meals on fine china and had a special dessert prepared by Food Service Director Jill Blanchard and her staff. Students loved the royal treatment.
