A Special Thank You from the Bailey Family
Billy Bailey, a third grader in Mrs. Timp's room, would like to thank everyone for attending or donating to his mom's benefit last weekend. According to Billy, the best part of the benefit at Burl Oaks was, "Golfing with my brother, Beau, my cousin, Bailey, and my brother's friend. I also liked everyone that came to support my mom. My mom is the BEST mom in the world!"
Boy Scout Troop Helps Westonka Schools
A special thank you to Pack 297 for their fantastic work of cleaning up the school grounds at Hilltop Primary School. Pack 297 held a "Camouflage and Clean Up" Night at Hilltop Primary School.

They brought in 16 bags of trash and found some interesting items (part of a shoe, old homework, lots of bristles from the snow sweeper).
