“So I’m going to take three pies in the face!”
Classroom teachers used the community service project as an opportunity to reinforce counting, graphic and sorting skills.
“We made it a chance to talk about being helpful and serving others, but we also tied it into a lot of academic skills as well,” teacher Lindsey Jones said. “We were counting the cans and sorting them and made it a sensory activity by carrying the heavy cans down to the cafeteria.”
Nora Scott was the first student who was randomly selected to pie Cicotte in the face.
“We were helping our friends,” she said.
Scott’s name was added to the lottery because she donated corn, macaroni and cheese and baked beans.
“I smushed the pie in his face and turned it,” she said. “I’ll remember this and it’s something I’m going to tell my family and my friends all about.”
