How Many Pies Can Ninth-Graders Make in a Day?

What does Sidwell Friends do with 460 plus pies, both pumpkin and apple? Share them for Thanksgiving with community organizations such as Martha's Table, Rosemount, So Others Might Eat, and A Wider Circle, of course. At the annual 9th Grade Pie Bake, parents, staff, and students pitched in for an aromatic day of apples, pumpkins, and time-tested recipes. Thank you to our 9th grade Parents Association organizers and the many volunteers for making, packaging, and delivering these sweet treats with care.
