WGME visits St. Dom’s for School Spirit Challenge


A teacher gladly pays $10 to “pie” the student of her choice.

WGME-TV recently visited Saint Dominic Academy’s Auburn campus to report on the school’s progress in the Great School Spirit Challenge, an effort to collect food donations for the Good Shepherd Food Bank. Staff and students arrived early at the school to set up and prepare for the day’s events, which attended by students from both campuses, along with parents and board members.

Live broadcasts of special activities, included student interviews, robotic demonstrations and a cheerleading routine, began in the gym at 6 a.m. and continued throughout the day. A highlight was a pie-in-the-face segment, when teachers were allowed to put a pie in the face of a student of their choice for $10. The event raised over $600.

The school has established a goal to collect 75,000 pounds of food by the end of the Challenge, which concludes on Friday, February 27. They currently have almost 50,000 pounds raised in the form of monetary and canned donations. Each dollar contributed gives the Food Bank the ability to purchase five pounds of food. To help the school reach its goal, you can donate canned and/or dry goods to either campus or make a monetary donation by visiting Good Shepherd’s website at
