Misc. Update (January 11th)

FYI: If you signed up to help at a PTO event (or class party) at the start of school potluck event, please note that those sign-up sheets were lost and hence, the reason you were never contacted. You can contact Amy Mason if you still have an interest in helping with the Valentines class parties or any other event. Thank you to those who signed up for events at the Pancake Flip (we promise not to lose those!).

Also, thank you to Melinda Toumi and Amber Nickel for taking on the job of running the Pinckney Talent Show in March!

Also, please note that Bob Arevalo, who really threw himself into his role as interim principal, has only a couple of weeks left before the return of Kirsten Wondra, so if you see him, be sure to tell him how much you appreciated his enthusiasm and ability.
