On Friday, September 16, PIHS students will leave school for the annual break.

Kids on Harvest Break usually do three things. Number one is get their volunteer hours done, number two is enjoy their time off and number three is going to work in agriculture or other jobs.

The SAD 1 Educational Farm has been hiring high school students for many years. The school farm is one of the many places kids will be working, as they have hired 20-30 kids this fall, according to the School Farm Director John Hoffses. They harvest potatoes, apples, pumpkins and squash. “I feel this is important for students to take part in the harvest break, as this is part of our history here in Aroostook County,” Hoffses said.

“Harvest work is important because it gives high school students work experience,” Trey Newcomb ’24 said. He will be working at the Bradley’s Citgo on North Street.
