The annual Fall Carnival will be from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 28. Most of the activities will be in the new gym, although bingo and the concession stand will be in the cafeteria.

Monday, Oct. 31, the elementary students will have their “Fall Party.” Teachers will be sending home notes regarding this. Also, at 9 a.m. in the new gym, retired Harlem Globetrotter player Captain Vallentino will present an assembly for all students.

Archery practice will begin at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday in the old gym. The students who participate in archery will be in archery tournaments later in the year. This activity is open to all students in 3rd grade and above. Permission slips have been sent home. If you did not receive one, please contact the office for more information. The school has all supplies that are needed for this activity. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn new skills.

The athletic department will host an “Indian Taco/Bingo/Auction from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 4. Please make plans to attend this event, which is a fundraiser for our basketball, softball, baseball and cheer teams. Money raised will be used to pay officials and buy necessary equipment/supplies. Make plans now to support our athletes.

Jostens will be at the school on Monday, Nov. 7, to discuss class rings and senior announcements. That day is informational only, but they will return on Friday, Nov. 11, to accept order forms and deposits. You can also order online.

TRICK OR TREAT

It is almost time for trick or treat in Wynona, so make plans now for Monday, Oct. 31. Kids will be out in full force from 6:30-8:30 p.m., so drivers are reminded to only go 15 miles per hour in the residential areas and 25 miles per hour on the highway. Please help make it a fun night for all the kids.
