Bingo night has been cancelled due to lack of volunteers. The PTO enjoys hosting fun family nights, but we need the help of parents and teachers to make the family events happen. Thank you to the volunteers who signed up and thank you to the families who donated books. We will offer the books to the library and classroom teachers. Any left over books will be saved for future events.
The PTO is hosting their annual fundraiser February 3-13. Flyers should be sent home today with students. We will donate 25% of the proceeds to the school library.
Join us for our February meeting on Tuesday, February 25 at 6:30 in the mezzanine. We will be discussing and planning:
