FAMILY NIGHT SUPPER-OCT. 24
We are selling pulled pork dinners. Each plate is $5 and includes a pulled pork sandwich, chips, drink and dessert. Student are taking orders now through Oct. 13. Money should be collected when the order is placed. Profit from  pre-sold dinners will go into your child's account. Profit from walk-up orders sold on the night of Oct. 24 will go into the general fund.

DESSERTS! DESSERTS!
We need all choir parents to bring a dessert for family night.
Desserts should be individually wrapped and ready to put on a plate. After Oct. 13, we will have an idea how many dessert servings we need. We will need extra servings for those who want just dessert and a drink.

WE NEED PARENTS TO WORK THIS EVENT! LET MRS. JAMES KNOW IF YOU WILL BE ABLE TO WORK.
