November Breakfast & Lunch Menus

From Our Counselor, Christie Thompson

Thank you so much for encouraging your kids to participate in Red Ribbon Week, and I’d like to give a special shout-out to the Bennett PTO for providing us with such fun prizes.

The creativity and effort put into the dress up days amazed me and made each day so much fun for everyone. The seeds we’re planting will reap rewards later when small incentives like squishies and fidget tools lose their appeal, so it was definitely worth it!!!
