Candy Bar Bingo Night

The PTO will be hosting Candy Bar Bingo at TCE on Friday, March 20th. There will be a raffle at the event where you can bid on "Teacher Experiences!" My "Teacher Experience" that you can bid on will be to stay after school with me and a friend. We will eat pizza and enjoy a movie!
