Bingo For Books

PTO Presidents, Ann Stachowicz and Tammy Kim,
standing in front of the new plaque.
Over 300 family members attended our annual 'Bingo For Books' event on March 22nd. Mike Mehigan, 3rd grade teacher, did a fabulous job as our emcee. He called out sight words, Dr. Suess books, and teacher names... then ran through the crowd giving students a chance to shout 'Bingo' into the microphone. A number of staff members and teenage volunteers checked bingo boards then sent winners to claim their prize. Every child went home with one or more new books thanks to Title One grant money.

In recognition of their efforts to fundraise and install a new sound system, a plaque honoring the PTO was installed in the cafeteria. Many families commented the new system made for a much more enjoyable evening.
