    DOVER-FOXCROFT — Foxcroft Academy students and faculty members spent their advisory period on June 11, in a novel fashion: cleaning up the neighborhood. Each advisory was assigned to one of three zones surrounding the FA campus and was responsible for picking up as much trash as possible in roughly 30 minutes. Although Dover-Foxcroft is quite a clean community, FA’s meticulous students still managed to fill many trash bags with scraps of food and paper, cigarette butts, pieces of glass, and other refuse.
