OPEN TO 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th GRADERS!

Be on the lookout for a backpack o’gram on a bright sheet of paper.  It tells all about our Festival of the Book visiting author, Arsia Rozegar.  He is an author/illustrator, and has written a series of graphic novels based on Persian mythology.  If you’d like your child to have an autographed copy of any of his books, he has set up a page on his website just for Virginia Festival of the Book.  

Be sure to use the promo code VABOOK to eliminate shipping.  We are excited to have Mr. Rozegar this year!

The author will visit with all 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders (not just 2nd and 5th graders as previously communicated)!
The popular, annual Bingo Night will be on Friday, March 6 th , 6 -8 pm in Murray’s gym! Mark your calendars for this PTO fundraising event.

Dinner, snacks , and car magnets will be available for purchase! The 5th grade will be selling soft tacos, drinks and to raise money for their end of year field trip. Please bring an appetite and a credit card! Vegetarian options will be available.

We need your help! Awesome prizes are a big part of the BINGO fun! Help us by donating amazing prizes such as gently used board games, books, electronics, sports/outdoor related items, art and crafts supplies, LEGOs, costumes, video games, dolls, culture items. If you have other ideas for prizes, feel free to donate them. We are excited to see what you all come up with!

To add to the excitement of the event, we are adding a Grand Prize table for the first winner of each game. Some big ticket items for this table would be greatly appreciated.
