Staff Dinner

The PTO is planning our next staff  dinner for Monday, February 8th at 5:30. Everyone works so hard during conference week, this gives them one less thing to worry about.  If you would like to contribute we are looking for  side dishes (the main dish will be provided) with an Italian theme: antipasto salads, fruit, dessert, soups, breads etc.
Please let the PTO know if you will be bringing something. Items will need to be at the school on February 8th by 4:00 pm.
