The UEPTO Bingo Night was a great success!  About 150 bingo players of all ages braved the Friday night temperatures to come back to school for some family fun, pizza and bingo.  Everyone received a prize and ten lucky winners received an invitation to breakfast with Mr. Beaver on Feb 20 at 8:15a.m.

Special thanks and recognition to Mrs. Jennings and Mr. Beaver who served as the bingo callers for the evening.  Also, thanks go to our local Giant (New Garden) for donating the bottled water and Fox Den Pizza for supporting the event through their generous pizza deal.
