Bingo Help Needed

Parents who need to make up Bingo hours….Please report to the gym for job assistance by 4:30 and be sure to sign in on the Attendance Form so your family receives credit for working at Bingo. Also, it is IMPERATIVE that you sign out before you leave at the end of the evening.  You will not receive credit for working Bingo hours if you do not sign out. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.  As stated on page 4 of the Student Handbook; “You must sign in and out on the Bingo Attendance sheet to receive your credit. Parents are not allowed to have anyone else work their Bingo hours. You may not be signed in or out by another parent.”  Thank you to all those families who regularly help at Bingo.  We appreciate all your help!
