PIZZA BINGO - JANUARY 23rd OR FEBRUARY 3rd
Pizza Bingo is such a huge event we have to offer it twice to accommodate everyone!!  Choose from either January 23rd or February 3rd.  Both nights will offer pizza, water, bingo, prizes, yummy treats from the fifth grade committee, and celebrity BINGO number-callers!  Make sure you sign up soon because each session will only hold 120 people.  If either of the dates reaches the 120 person capacity we will no longer accept registrations for that date. NO TICKETS SOLD AT THE DOOR.  Please see attached flyer for information on how to register.  Email abiahruel@gmail.com with questions.

LAST CHANCE FOR Chess Club
Like, athletics are exercise for the body, chess is exercise for the mind. Engaging in chess activity provides school students a substantial advantage in education; essentially the development of the mind and patterns of thinking not otherwise offered or encountered. Luckily, it is also a fun and engaging game for kids!

Club meetings for the spring will be in the Aiken library from 3:30 (3:20) to 4:30 PM on Thursdays: January 9, 16, 23 and 30 February 6, 13, 20, 27 and March 5 and 19. The program is for students grades K through 5, no prior experience necessary. Registration is open through January 6.

WEHA KIDS POP-UP!!
* Big News! The first ever WEHA POP-UP Kids Market will be at Town Hall on February 1st 2020! Do you know any budding entrepreneurs in High School, Middle School or Elementary School? All kids participating are given the opportunity to create, market and sell their very own products! Vendors will keep all proceeds they make at the market. All potential vendors can sign up and find more information at www.POPUPKIDSMARKET.com. What an experience for the youngsters in our community to learn first-hand what it takes to be an entrepreneur! Hurry, vendor space is limited!!!!!!!
 
BOX TOPS
*There are now two easy ways to earn money for Aiken School though Box Tops for Education. You can download the app and scan your receipt, or you can continue to send in the box tops in plastic bags (grouped by 25). Of course, if you already taped them on a piece of paper we'll accept that as well. 
 
 AMAZON SMILE
*You can also earn money for Aiken School every time you shop on Amazon by simply going to smile.amazon.com and selecting Aiken School PTO as the charity you want to support. You will find the exact same items and discounts as you would see on Amazon.com, but by going through smile.amazon you have the added bonus of donating money to Aiken every time you shop!
 
Have a great week!
