Every fall, we host the Partners In Excellence Back-to-School Breakfast to kick off the new school year.
Hosted by Archbishop William E. Lori and the PIE Board of Advisors, the Back-to-School Breakfast is a free event that celebrates the work of PIE, our Community Schools, and – most importantly – the success of our PIE Scholars.
The event is highlighted by a PIE Scholar or Alum speaker and the presentation of our Annual PIE Award to a member of the community who has contributed significantly to the mission of PIE and our Community Schools through their support, advocacy, and leadership.
