The PTSA’s annual Family Bingo Night and Raffle is back, Thursday March 9th. Be sure to mark your calendar to save the date because you will not want to miss this awesome event! Admission is $5.00 per person to enter and play bingo all night. We have at least 50 winners for each of the 5 games with 400 prizes to choose from.
Doors will open at 6:15 for admissions and pizza sales. Make things simple Thursday night by coming down early and grabbing a slice and a seat. At 7:00 our amazing teachers will start calling our first bingo game.
Parents, please accompany your kids to this event. Children will not be permitted entry without a supervising adult. The PTSA is not responsible for children if left unsupervised.
New this year, cool bingo stampers are available with pre-order tickets only. Look for pre-order forms to come home this week. Please return by the 6th to receive a Bingo Marker(kids) and a free raffle ticket(adults). Pre-order forms can also be printed HERE.
Classes are currently preparing raffle baskets that are sure to excite. Raffle tickets will be sold the night of the event for $1.00 per ticket.
Lots of help is still needed to make this wonderful family event a success. Please sign-up for a slot to help. Plenty of positions are still available.  Sign-up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4ba5a823a2f49-bingo

Mrs. Cherian's Library Corner
We are off and running with the Battle of the Books, and the demonstration of teamwork, good sportsmanship and reading knowledge has been incredible! The books are thought-provoking and inspiring this year, and participants have stepped up to the challenge.  For the coming week, we will meet during lunch instead of recess.
We continue to prepare for Read Across America at the end of the month.  Several activities are planned including an author visit on February 27.  Kelly Milner Halls will be sharing her Wonders of the Weird stories.  Book order forms were sent home Friday and should be returned to school by Monday, February 13th.
We had a few KCLS books returned to the library again this week.  Please remind your child to check books for the LWSD barcode label before returning them to our library.  If KCLS books are returned here, they are dropped off at the Sammamish library on Friday afternoon.
