Calling All Bakers! A Hope for Hines Benefit to be held at BINGO

posted Feb 25, 2015, 5:39 PM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

Hi Families!  We are requesting some help for Bingo Night on Thursday, March 5th.  The Citizenship Committee is having a bake sale for "Hope for Hines."  Bingo Night is always a fun and popular event with the children and families of Steenrod, which is why we need your help with the bake sale.  We will be more than thrilled with whatever (nut-free) items you are willing to bake/purchase.  Packaging up the goodies individually for sale is a bonus, however, it is not required.  

If you are able to donate for this event, you may either bring the baked items with you to Bingo Night, or you may drop them off at the school before the event.  

As always, we thank you for all of your help this year.  You have no idea how much Steenrod and the PTA appreciates ALL OF YOU!
