Doorway to Learning, Doorways to our World!

Learning can be a doorway to the world. Last month at Anderson, our doorways helped us learn more about our world.

From the Anderson PTO


The PTO Board has so much to be thankful for this month. Thanks to everyone that has supported us throughout the month. Whether it was dining out at one of our fundraiser nights, donating an item to our raffle basket or bingo night prizes, or coming to our bingo night we appreciate your support. It was SO great to see so many family log into our bingo game. It was nice to have so much of our community together again smiling and laughing together. It has been too long since we have been able to do that. We look forward to our next virtual event. (see details below)
