Kittery Students Challenge Principal to Kiss a Pig
Horace Mitchell Primary School students struck a deal: If they combined to read 1,000 books, Principal Allison Gamache would have to complete a challenge presented by the students.
On Friday that agreement came full circle as the kids hit their goal.
Gamache fulfilled their wish for her to kiss a pig in a schoolwide assembly.
The fifth-year principal, after reading the children’s book ‘This School Year Will be the Best!’ by Kay Winters, gave a smooch to Phoebe, a roughly 150-pound miniature pot-bellied pig, outside the school with students, staff and parents watching.
