BINGO and Silent Auction a Huge Success!

WOW! What a fun night at BINGO last night!!! It was a HUGE success! How do we know? Mr. Machi himself was pulling tables into the hallway for the overflow of BINGO players. We converted our card sales table and half our concessions table to playing tables too! We estimate about 400 attendees, which doubled last year’s attendance. Big shout out to all our local businesses and sponsors that donated items for our amazing auction baskets! We brought in over $4,000 last night! Our goal of 5 Chromebooks in every Classrooms has officially been reached! The PTO can’t thank our parents and volunteers enough for making this night such a success. We hope everyone had a great time and can’t wait until next year!

We Came Close to Meeting Our Fun Run Goal!

We are very excited and hope you are too!  We almost reached our goal of $20,000. We received 100% of all cash and check donations and 85% of online donations!!!  The PTO is raising funds to purchase 50 more Chromebooks so that every classroom has 5 Chromebooks.  We also pay for three amazing assemblies each year, the DARE program, Student of the month awards, STEM lab projects, special requests/needs from grade levels and Teacher Conference meals.  Every student received a FREE t-shirt to wear during the Run and enjoyed a snowcone after.  

We had several kids reach their $150 goal, so they can have Pizza with the Principal.  Click here to see all the fun we have in store for our Moncure kids.

BINGO Night and our first Silent Auction was a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our BINGO Night/Silent Auction.  We had a great turnout and even had to order extra pizza!  One lucky winner ended the night by winning the “golden ticket” to have lunch with our Principal, Mr. Machi.  A huge thank you to Mr. Machi and Ms. Norton for calling the BINGO numbers.  They did an amazing job!

We also sold every auction item and raised over $800.  We’re looking forward to continuing this new tradition next year.

Please support the business who generously donated our BINGO prizes and Silent Auction items.  Support them as they have supported our school!  Find out more about contacting these businesses here.
