PSSA Cereal Drive 2024: 
PAES students collected boxes of cereal to donate to the Cross Town Ministries Food Pantry in Punxsutawney. To celebrate their hard work and end of state testing, students and teachers create cereal dominoes during the post-PSSA assembly each year. Students are chosen at random to be the starter of the "dominoes." This year students collected over 160 boxes of cereal. 
Keep up the good work!
