MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Students at Mahopac Middle School received a delicious lesson in architecture last month at the school’s annual gingerbread house competition. Principal Vince DiGrandi and Superintendent Dr. Dennis Creedon handed out several awards for “most creative,” “most classic,” “most educational” and more.

An auction of the edible houses for the MMS giving tree was held to help give gifts during the holidays to families in need.
