Friday November 17th is Grattan's Annual PIE DAY!  


For every $5,000 raised from November 1 to November 16, a member of the Grattan community will participate in Pie Day during clap-in on Friday, November 17 (for K-5) or in the mid-morning (for Pre-K).


In case you have never witnessed the glory of Grattan's PIE DAY, here's what you have to look forward to...

  • Grades with at least 35% participation in the Annual Campaign will have one (1) parent or teacher get a pie in their face. 
  • Grades with at least 50% participation will have two (2) parents or teachers get pies in their faces, and additionally win a real freshly-baked pie for their classroom teachers to enjoy at home! 
  • The grade with the highest participation will receive a commemorative pie plate to celebrate their efforts and engagement.

Everything helps - just $1 counts toward participation for your grade!  So if you haven't given yet, or even if you have, consider making a donation by November 16! 


Grattan’s Annual Campaign is the school’s single biggest fundraising effort, has raised more than $98,400 so far! This amount represents 39% of our goal of exceeding $250,000 and 100% participation by the end of January. So far, here are the participation percentages by grade: 

Kinder: 16%
1st: 20%
2nd: 23%
