October 21st will be here before we know it! We have a lot to do to get ready for our Fall Festival! For those that did not make the last meeting, we have set the basket themes for each grade. Room moms will be sending out information about what they will need from all of our parents.

Regulators BBQ will be set up again this year selling award winning BBQ nachos, BBQ sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs. They will also have Dippin’ Dots available to purchase! PTSO will be sending info home about pre-ordering armbands, as well as raffle tickets on September 30th.

We are in the need of donations for our raffle items, especially electronics! If anyone knows someone that might help us out, please let us know! Also, if you know someone who would let us borrow square hay bales, we need some for games. We also need pumpkins (lots of them)! They will be used for pumpkin bowling, so different sizes will work. Adrenaline Mobile Laser Tag is going to be set up and the cost will be 1.00 per play, per child.

We also could use MANY volunteers! Setting up, cleaning up, and working the games takes a lot of help! If you can spare a couple hours, please let your child’s teacher know that you are willing and one of the PTSO officers will get in touch with you to set your time!

Thanks for your help and support!
