The Class of 2025 hosts a pie fundraiser for the holiday season

The Class of 2025 advisors and three of the four officers pose for a picture during their cabinet meeting. The class officers from left to right are President Diya Jayaraman, Vice President Tanya Dayan, and Treasurer Iesha Patel.

The Class of 2025 is holding a pie fundraiser in which anyone can order pies until the deadline of Dec. 2 at 3 pm during the Holiday Bazaar to support the junior class. The pies will be available for pickup on Dec. 21 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. at Westford Academy. 

The class officers and advisors have partnered with Mann Orchards Farmstand and Bakery in Methuen and are selling a variety of pies to fundraise for the class. Orders can be made through this google form and can be paid by cash, check, or My School Bucks

The flavors include apple, blueberry, squash, pumpkin, apple crumb topped pie, and burgundy crumb topped pie (blueberry and raspberry) which are all being sold for $15. They are also selling pecan pie which is $18.

“It’s a small business, so this is a good way to help out our class and a small business,” junior class president Diya Jayaraman said.

With the additional bonus of supporting a local business, the officers and class advisors are hopeful that this fundraiser will benefit the class as well. French teacher and one of the class advisors, Jennifer Conti, believes that past successes with the pie fundraiser is what makes this a good option for the Class of 2025. 

“We know that a previous class had success with the fundraiser, [which was] the class that just graduated, and so there wasn’t another group that was already doing it and we were looking for something for this class to jump in on,” Conti said.

Within one week, there have been almost 45 orders.

Their biggest concern right now is the pick up process and figuring out the logistics for that day. Both advisors and the class officers hope that the pickup will be a drive-through set up. They are requesting help from parents and have already gotten a few responses from a few families. 

“We’ve had five or six families say that they are willing to pick stuff up for us, and then we still have to work out how we’re going to do it, it’s probably going to be a drive-thru,” Spanish teacher and class advisor Julie Bostrom said. “That’s all happening on the same day, so we’re just hoping that the stars align on that day after all the planning.”
