MIDDLETOWN  New Holland-Middletown faculty and staff celebrated American Education Week with the following activities:

Administration and support staff were recognized with breakfast treats on Tuesday, and staff members were given new 2013-2014 NH-M coffee mugs on Wednesday.

During advisory period on Thursday, there was a door-decorating contest for junior high students.

On Friday morning, students arrived to find it was "raining" candy as several faculty and staff members were atop the roof when the students came to school. Other teachers greeted students at the front door with a welcome sign stating that "Education is our TOP priority." A faculty-student dodgeball game was scheduled for later in the day, and the staff baby picture contest also began.

Along with American Education Week, the students also celebrated Superintendent Todd Dugan's birthday on the final day of American Education Week.
