Dads -n- Kids Night: Minute to Win It (November 13th)

Dads, grandpas, big brothers, uncles...you're invited to Minute to Win It with your kids put on by The Herd, our father-figure group. Come play 10 super-fun games with your kids at school and learn more about how to become a bigger part of the Longbranch community.

We've gotten too big to have our "during the day" 1st/2nd-grade feast and we've struggled for the past few years with how to continue a tradition of bringing people together in friendship during the month of Thanksgiving, bringing family into our school, and celebrating all we're thankful for.

After a lot of contemplation, we're going to start a new tradition that includes the entire school, connects family and friends, and allows us to share a meal...so to speak.

You are invited to attend our first annual Friends and Family Game and Pie Night at Longbranch. We'll provide the board games (but if you have one you want to bring and share we'd love that too), we'll also provide the whipped cream and the coffee and bottled water. Each family is asked to bring a pie to share and a non-perishable item to donate to either the Northern Kentucky Cold Shelter (paper towels, toilet paper, new men's socks, winter hats, scarves, gloves) or to Welcome House (Diapers, Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap).

BENEFIT FOR PUERTO RICO (November 14th from 6-7:30)

On November 14 at 6:00 pm, we will have a benefit event for the people of Puerto Rico. Dinner will be served, there will be a market, and second graders will perform songs and dances from Puerto Rico at 7:00 pm, culminating in a fun dance for all. Donations large and small will be gratefully accepted.

Please plan to join us!

Please sign up to assist us!
