Hurrah for Morgan Mill!

There is a lot of pre planning that goes into a school carnival like our Morgan Mill Spooktacular on Saturday, October 22. This week the school needs bagged Halloween candy before Thursday, October 20th. If you or your business is donating an auction item or bingo prizes, they need the donation in the school office by Monday, October 17th. The cake walk items need to be delivered to the school by 4 pm. on Friday, the 21th. This carnival needs a lot of parent and community involvement in order for it to be successful. There will be more than twenty booths that have to have an adult to run them. This is a great opportunity for you to get to know more of our fabulous Morgan Mill kids, parents and community members. The event is always a draw for our ex-students too. Come and see how our ex-students have changed. This is the biggest Morgan Mill School fundraiser and it needs everyone’s participation for it to be successful.

Another way that you can help is to buy raffle tickets. They are only 1$. Choose among three items; Debbie Lincoln original oil painting, a Kindle, or a fire pit. The drawing will be later that day. Good luck! Thanks to parents, teachers, and friends ahead of time for all of your work toward making Morgan Mill the best school.

This is an important change in dates. The MM football game next week will be on Tuesday, October 11th instead of Thursday, October 13th. If you have a question, call the school for clarification.

Saturday, Nov. 12, at 6 pm is the annual Morgan Mill Volunteer Fire Department “Cake and Pie” auction. Barbecue and all the fixings will start the event and the auction will be at 6:30. You are asked to bring your best homemade dessert specialty for the fundraising auction.

The new Freightliner chassis for a new tanker arrived last week and it is going to need a lot of equipment before it can be put into use. The best thing that I have heard is that is has automatic transmission. In addition, it will have much improved pumping system, improved safety lighting, and will just generally be a much safer truck to use and drive. It is exciting to see our “little” town get equipment like the “big boys.”

It will be our job to buy the cakes and pies to furnish the items for the truck. Put the date on your calendar and save your pennies for the one fundraiser this year for the fire department.

Congratulations to Peyton Kimple for receiving Stephenville Optimist High School student of the month. Proud mom is Michelle Kimple, kindergarten teacher in Morgan Mill.
