- Beer and Wine Tasting Fundraiser: Set for 4/14/17 at the Morris VFW. Amanda will order tasting cups soon. Michelle distributed a rough draft for the new donation letter format, since we are trying to pursue more cash donations rather than auction items. Hopefully narrow live auction items down to 10 and silent auction down to 20-30. Michelle is talking to her friend Lori about paper tickets and vendor tickets on different colored paper. Yapsody sales can start February 25th, after Pickleball tournament. Jenna is talking with Jody’s Hot Dogs (VFW’s restaurant) for catering options and pricing.

- Large purchase items have been put on hold due to the high cost of pea gravel project.

Principal’s Update: The holiday season is a busy time of year for everyone and the thought of reading and schoolwork is often overlooked. While researching, I came across a few engaging tips and activities to practice Literacy Skills at home over the holiday season and winter break. The article described ways to practice these skills while traveling, cooking, shopping, scrapbooking, following the news, and exploring the internet.
