And finally, the winners of our Cow Plop Bingo:

Alice (this is Alice) plopped on a line between two squares and Lukas and Dan graciously agreed to share the $1000 prize.  And Teach Elementary School wins too, with $2674 in profits from the bingo going to fund study trips, Battle books, AR tests for the library, field trips and more.  Very special thanks to Tammy Haas and the Haas family, without whom Bovine Bingo would not have been possible.

Congratulations to all our winners!!

Not only that, but we had a great dinner and the kids had a ton of fun playing GaGa Ball.  Very special thanks from the committee and especially from the kids goes to Jim Schemmer, who built this beautiful GaGa Pit for the kids to play their new favorite game.  Thanks Jim!!
 THEN, we were all treated to a Salsa Lesson, thanks to our favorite school employee, Terri Fossmier!  Thanks so much for the fabulous music and the fun dancing!
Terri and her granddaughter teach the basic Salsa step.
By the end of the evening, people were really getting the hang of it!
Thanks, Teach Families for making this a great event!
