This money allows students to use real world experiences to create things or look at potential problems and come up with solutions. Last year, our kindergartners planted and sold gourds to raise money to buy sweatpants for the school nurse for students in need; the second graders designed and built furniture for their classrooms and our multi-age classrooms along with our kindergarten classrooms planted Noah’s Garden for Food at First. These are just a few of the projects the seed money from BINGO Night helped fund. Please join us for a fun-filled, family night on Thursday, September 13th at Central Elementary!!
