HUNGRY, HUNGRY HAWKS was a HIT on Thursday evening! Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to make it such a HUGE success! The pumpkin auction was a HIT, everyone had a blast playing BINGO, and there were lots of smiles and laughs throughout the night.

Congratulations to Mrs. Dinkel for winning the coveted Golden Bowl Award for FIRST PLACE in the chili cook off. Second Place went to Mr. Bartels and third was awarded to Mrs. Rieschick. Thank you for cooking some great chili and making some even better memories.

Big shout out to Lazy Lemons and Freshly Squeezed Photography for sponsoring Hungry Hungry Hawks.

PJs for BLAS

Thank you so much for everyone that has given so generously to support our BLAS Food Drive. We are getting close to OUR goal but are falling just a bit short so we are going to extend the date to Tuesday, November 22.

As an incentive, anyone bringing in a food donation on Tuesday can wear PJs to school that day. (Can't go wrong with another PJ Day can you?) :)
