Week of 10/15/18

Greetings Twelve Bridges Elementary Families,


I hope everyone had a great weekend! This Saturday, October 20th, is our Mother-Son Halloween Dance! The PTC has put a lot of work into planning that event and it sounds like it is going to be a lot fun!


Thanks for your support,


Mr. Middleton

Boo Grams

Boo Grams will be on sale after school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week from 2:45 to 3:00. Also, order forms are coming home if you would prefer to order them that way. Please just fill out the form and return it with payment (cash only) to your child's teacher. Students will then be given blank cards to fill out and return to Tiger Crew. If you would like to give your child a Boo Gram secretly, they can be purchased in the office. Thanks so much for your support!
