Candy Bar Bingo!

The PTO will be hosting Candy Bar Bingo at TCE on Friday, March 20th from 6:00-8:30pm. The second grade teachers and Mrs. Hopper will be calling bingo numbers from 6:50-7:15. 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.

Additional note about Candy Bar BINGO!


Candy Bar Bingo is almost here! It is Friday, March 20th from 6:00 to 8:30. We are 4th graders in Mrs. Gibson’s class and for our Genius Hour project we want to help an HSE family. We are selling cookies, wristbands, and candles for Fishers Junior High student, Aislynn Ball, who has Gardner’s syndrome. The money will be donated to her family for Aislynn’s medical bills. Gardner’s syndrome is a type of syndrome that makes tumors grow all over your body.

The wristbands are $2.00 and the cookies are $1.00. The tea light candles are 50¢, the medium candles are $1.00 and the large is $1.50.

We will be selling from 6:00 to 7:30. Make sure to bring money to Candy Bar Bingo!

We hope to see you there!
