Mrs. Fletcher takes a pie in the face for our wounded soldiers!picture of students

Four students in Mrs. Bristol’s Entrepreneurship class found an extra way last week to raise money for the Patriot Highlander Challenge which was this year’s charity for the class’s coffee shop. Ryan Brosnan, Warren Mau, Liz Roscoe and Talia Spina asked 5 faculty members to see if they would be willing to take a pie in the face for our cause. Students voted by putting their change into the bucket for the teacher they wanted to get a pie in the face. The teacher with the most votes (money) received a pie in the face. Mrs. Fletcher was the lucky winner. Her son AJ Fletcher, also in the Entrepreneurship class, was the lucky one to bestow the pie on his mother.
