Pizza BINGO!


🌟 Thank you to everyone who made Pizza BINGO a massive success! 🌟

We had over 450 family members and students in the MPR, and we couldn't have done it without each and every one of you.

Special thanks to:

  • Zina for managing the pizza and drinks and getting donations from Costco and Snapdoodle.
  • Jennette and Sarah for hauling all those pizzas to the kitchen.
  • Amanda, Dan, Sasha, Michelle, Amy, Nikki, and Heather for the setup.
  • George Nowik, our fantastic MC and BINGO caller.
  • Johnny, our incredible custodian, for setting up tables and tackling the huge cleanup job.

Thank you to everyone who handed out pizza and drinks and kept the line moving smoothly. Mrs. Brunnell, you were wonderful handing out BINGO cards. Maggie, our tech whiz and amazing 7th grader, you were the MVP!

Huge thanks to Dan, our Watch DOGS helper, and the prize team: Heather (next year’s PTA VP), Maureen, Katie, Mrs. Warner, and her kids. The prize table was a zoo, but you handled it amazingly!

And to all the family members, husbands, and middle school helpers who stacked chairs, folded tables, and helped with prize distribution, thank you!

We may not have mentioned every single person by name, but know that you are all amazing, and we are extremely grateful for everything you did to make this event a huge success. πŸ’–
