Rosie's Spirit Night
Tuesday, Jan. 12th, 5-9pm
7540 Memorial Parkway Southwest
Join other Challenger Elementary families at Rosie's Cantina on South Memorial Parkway on Tuesday, January 12th for our first spirit night of the spring semester. From 5:00 until 9:00 PM 18% of your check total (minus tax and tip) will come back to Challenger Elementary. This applies to take out orders as well, so if you're having a busy night, call in your order and swing by to pick it up. Just remember to take in your flyer to have attached to your check. Flyers MUST be presented in order for Challenger Elementary to receive the donation. If your child does not make it home with a flyer, print one by clicking here or from the PTA Facebook post. There will also be a few extras at the hostess counter and in the car line on Tuesday afternoon.
Pre-order the CES 2015-2016 yearbook today! The cost is only $30. There are 225 yearbooks available this year, so be sure and order yours if you want to guarantee your child's copy!
This year, we are offering yearbook personalization. You can have your child's name embossed on the front cover for $5, but only until January 16. After that, you can still pre-order a yearbook, but personalization will no longer be an option.
