We are excited to say that it is Carnival Time at Bon Lin. As a part of our annual carnival we hold a silent auction with donations and baskets put together by our teachers and parents. Each class is assigned a theme for their basket, and parents are asked to send in donations. This is an important fundraiser that helps the PTA do great things for our school.

Teachers, parents, and room parents will be working together to make your class basket a success. We ask each family to send in an item that follows the theme to help fill the basket. Please turn in all donation items no later than Wednesday, November 4th. Make sure to attend the carnival, Nov. 14th from 11am-3pm, for all the fun! Thank you for your support.
