BECAUSE OF YOU....we had a great night at Family Bingo and at Painting with A Twist on Election Day. Thank you so much to the volunteers at both of these events! 

Please, please, please send back your Kid Stuff Books if you do not intend to pay for them.  Otherwise, please send $25 in with your child to pay for the Kids Stuff Book.  Thank you for supporting this yearly fundraiser. 

Thank you to everyone who helped with the School Directory this year, especially Heidi Geist and Sandy Clemens.  The directory will be ready very soon!  Next year is Mary Eckert’s last year doing the directory so we are looking for someone to shadow her next year so they can take it over the following year.  Please let us know if you are interested! 

There are still a few Yankee Candle Orders left to be picked up in the lobby….if you have not received yours yet, please try to get pick them up this week during school hours.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Diner’s Club at Jesse's BBQ and the Texas Roadhouse. A good time was had by all who came out! Be on the lookout in January/February for our next dinner out.
