It's Turkey Time!

Next week may be Thanksgiving, but Turkey Time starts this week with our annual Turkey Bingo Night. Friday from 6pm to 8pm come on back to school and settle in for some fun. All the Turkeys go home with you and all the proceeds go to our PTO. There will be 12 rounds of bingo. Don't worry if you end up in a tie, because a tie can win you a pie! The kids can come too. They will be playing Lynxo for books in the library. We will see you here.

It is getting pretty cold already, so let me take this opportunity to remind everyone to send your kids to school with warm clothes. Hats, gloves/mittens, snow pants, and coats are required for recess. We have a guideline of -10 for recess (including wind chill factor) so we want to bundle them up and let them play. The sledding hill is closed right now but we will open it when we get enough snow to make it safe.
