Thank you to the Mullen-Buss family for donating and painting the wonderful bags or corn-hole boards that the fourth grade class will auction off at the Black and White Gala on November 17th.  Each student signed the boards and created their own unique symbol.  The boards look awesome!  I hope you are able to attend the event so you can bid on these one of a kind boards!  I will send a picture soon!
