On April 5, whipped cream flew through the gymnasium at Marion Street Elementary School as the community gathered for the thrilling culmination of the Pie Your Principal fundraiser.

Marion Street classes were challenged by the Student Council to raise money for ALS Ride For Life, a non-profit that supports research to find a cure for ALS. Each class worked hard to bring in the most donations for the chance to pie their principal, Mrs. Theresa Macchia, and other Marion Street staff members. Mr. Anthony Simone’s fourth grade class raised the most money, followed by Mrs. Kristen Keane’s third grade class and Mrs. Christina Toscano’s first grade class. The top three classes took turns tossing plates of whipped cream while their peers cheered them on. It was an unforgettable event for all.

The fundraiser was a huge success, and Ride For Life will visit Marion Street in May to receive the grand total collected by the Marion Street community.
