CPE KScope - End Of Year 5th Grade Pie Challenge

"We usually close out each school year with the Pie Challenge for 5th grade send off! Each 5th grader gets to choose a Counselor to pie in the face. Additionally, the 5th grade Junior Counselors are pied in the face by a Kaleidoscope Counselor. We had to change it up this year, but we were excited to include families in our Annual Pie Challenge. Enjoy! Thank you all for such a great school year in person and virtually." - Ms. Trina Noonan,
Charles Pinckney Elementary Site Coordinator
