Golden Empire teachers take a pie in the face to raise funds
Golden Empire Elementary School loves the number 6,584.
That is the number of Box Tops collected during the month of May for Golden Empire’s Pie in the Face Box Top Challenge. For every 1,000 Box Tops turned in, a teacher volunteered to get a pie in the face.
With that large number, six teachers got a pie in the face on June 2. Golden Empire teachers Kim Engstrom, Linda Hogg-Wood, Marti Woodward, Maryanne Brown, Drew Gardner and Principal Irene Eister all bravely stepped up for their pie facial.
The students had a great time and their chant “Pie in the Face” could be heard down the street! The Box Tops total for the school year was 19,104, a new Golden Empire record, all adding up for more funds for their enrichment programs.
