Barton Hills Bulletin

Week of November 17 - 21

From Kati

BRRRRR. Little bit chilly this week. Hope to see you at Carnival tomorrow - it should be a nice day even if a bit nippy. We're celebrating the 50th so come walk through the archive display in the library and have some celebratory cake at about 3:00.

Updates and Reminders and Request this week

  • As we are looking at the PTA budget after Carnival, I would like to share a list of "wants" for possible purchase/funding. As a team, would you please give me a list of "wants". If I could get by Tuesday morning, I will compile and share on Tuesday evening at the Executive Board meeting.
