MONROE - Abraham Lincoln Accelerated Learning Academy competed in an "all-school reward" program for the month of December.

Each person who took in a canned good or edible item for the food pantry received a bead, which could be put in a bucket as a vote toward one of three "principal dare" options for the principal, Sara Latimer. The options were: "Riding a tricycle around for a full school day," "temporarily dying her hair red and green," or "getting slimed."

It was a tight race, but in the end students voted to see Latimer slimed at the school assembly Dec. 22.

Sixteen student council members assisted school counselor Aaron Heim and Latimer with counting, boxing and transporting food items for the food pantry.
