Senior-K kids wore purple bandanas on Purple Cake Day

Forsyth kids voted with quarters on Senior-K’s Purple Cake Day for some great faculty or staff person to get a pie plate full of purple Cool Whip in the face. The fun factor of pie throws outweighs bake sales by a long shot as fundraisers go. Purple Cake Day raised $486.18 – mostly quarters, all counted by Senior-Kers. This is a class service project.

Fifth graders picked the winner! 

And the winner is . . . Señor Horgan! From the look of those fifth graders clustered around Señor Horgan’s bucket and the bills collecting therein, it appears that Señor Horgan’s fan club sewed up the deal. No doubt they are looking forward to seeing Señor with a purple Cool Whip pie on his face on Green & White Day.

A quarter in the bucket to vote and a lot of quarters for Sr-Kers to count!

Voting. On Tuesday, at arrival on a beautiful spring day, Senior-K kids hovered around the steps to the Rebecca Glenn Playgrounds monitoring the purple buckets with photos of the nominees for this pie-in-the-face honor: Mrs. Militello, Mr. Downs, Mrs. Anibal, Mr. Thomas, Mrs. Winkeler, Mrs. Pittman, Mr. Mermis, Coach Harris, Mr. Hooper, Señor Horgan, Ms. Wilkins, and Mrs. McCormack. Your quarter in the bucket was a vote cast for your favorite.

Of course, voters got stickers after they cast their quarters 

This Senior-K fundraiser for Nepal’s First Steps Himalaya (FSH) supports early childhood and primary school education in disadvantaged communities in rural Himalaya. A big thank you to Forsyth voters and nominees for supporting the cause.
