TUXEDO PARK — If you smelled fresh baked pies in Tuxedo Park on Sunday, Nov. 20, your olfactory sense was not fooling you. Tuxedo Park School students and parents were baking apple pies for Pie Day, a community service activity that’s been a tradition at the school for more than ten years.

The school’s bakers made 40 pies for the Grandparents Acting as Parents (GAP) program in Paterson, N.J. GAP provides support and resources to grandparents who have assumed the responsibility of parenting their grandchildren.

Pie Day complements Tuxedo Park School’s theme for the 2016-17 academic year, “Making a Difference,” which offers students a multitude of opportunities to improve others’ lives.

“Pie Day is a friendly gesture that goes a long way in showing grandparents who are part of the GAP program that we recognize and respect their hard work,” said Tuxedo Park School’s Head of School Todd Stansbery.
