BINGO Notice-Please read

Hi everyone and welcome back! I'd like to especially welcome anyone that is new to E.C.P.S, you've chosen an amazing school for your children!
It's time to gear up for another year of bingos! I, along with our Parent Association, appreciate the 4 hours of work it takes to fill a bingo obligation which brings in roughly $1000.00 per bingo. That money goes towards field trips, busing for those trips and is helping build a new playground in the near future.
At our last P.A. meeting, there was many of us trying to come up with incentives for parents to work these bingos so we can continue receiving these major funds. Ideas brought up since last year are:

*Receive a $5 off coupon that can be used towards hot lunch.
*Have the parents that don't work the bingos pay for their child's field trips etc
*Drop the bingos and have everyone pay for field trips, busing etc.

We would appreciate any feedback on this matter. Feel free to call or email me if you have any ideas or would like to give your input, it would be extremely helpful as it's getting more and more difficult to find volunteers.

Our bingo dates for the rest of the year are as follows:

October 8 - Evening
November 29 - Evening
December 15 - Evening

Please call or email me if you can help with any of these bingos.

I would like to take this time to thank everyone for their support for my family over the last month since a fire destroyed our house. Your help has made it much easier to move on after such a devastating loss. Whether it be items that were dropped off at various locations, monetary or emotional support, I can't describe how much it was appreciated.

Again, thank you so much!

Charlene Lewis
