EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Students at the White Brook Middle School in Easthampton had the opportunity to meet the New England Patriots mascot Pat Patriot, among other guests, a school year kick-off event on Wednesday.

The school was recently awarded a $3,319 grant to purchase a mobile breakfast kiosk to increase the amount of students accessing breakfast each day. Recess equipment was also purchased.

Students ate breakfast, sample smoothies at the kiosk, and play on the new playground equipment, as well as met Pat Patriot, Massachusetts Dairy Farmer Bob Gould, and other special guests.
