So, are you wondering what a "Gratitude Pie" is? My pie is a mix of blueberry, blackberry and raspberry, and it's a pie that you bake and give away to your coworkers because they have so generously bought raffle tickets week after week since November for a good cause. The good cause - was to raise funds for our 8th grade end of year activities. Thanks to their generous support, we raised $1,014.00 for our students!
November - Election day bake sale, no school, but I dropped a pie off!
It started innocently enough - bake two pies and bring them in for a Thanksgiving raffle. Who wouldn't be happy to have a home-made pie for Thanksgiving?
Then it was 3 more pies until Christmas (one a week) - gee, this money is starting to pile up! Maybe I should bake one a month for special occassions.
January - Martin Luther King's Birthday
February - Super Bowl Sunday Apple Pie
February - President's Day & Valentine's Day - Cherry pie with white chocolate hearts
March - St. Patrick's Grasshopper pie
March - MCAS Pie (to cheer everyone up after the high stakes testing)
March - Family game night
April - Kentucky Derby
April -Easter Chocolate Cream pie with cocoanut crust
May - Mother's Day Apple Pie
May - Apple Pie for major school fundraiser
June - Gratitude Pie
Who knows, there may be one more in store, school's in session until the 18th!
Now, my question to you is this; do you think I should continue this for next year? Or will people get bored buying raffle tickets for home made pies?
