Botha School boat challenge on now

New Botha School cookbook available

Congratulations to all who won turkeys at the last bingo game which was held last night, Dec. 6. It was a great evening and everyone had a enjoyable time. The next bingo evening will be right before Christmas, Wednesday Dec. 22, starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30. So come on out and try out your luck, who knows, you could be one of the lucky winners that evening.

The next Quilting Day will be held this coming Monday 11, starting at 9:30 a.m., and this one will be the last one held until the second Monday of January. So make sure you make it out and finish up your Christmas items that day. Everyone is invited to attend.

Boy, where has the time gone, we are only about 2 and a half weeks away from the big day (Christmas Day), so the students and staff are really working hard to get ready to entertain you at their annual Christmas concert, which will be held at 7p.m. on Wednesday 20. This will be taking place at the Botha Hall that evening and they are asking everyone to bring with them a nonperishable item to donate to the food bank, which will truly be appreciated. So make sure you set this date aside and come out and enjoy this fantastic program. Who knows, Santa might make appearance at the end of the evening.

The staff would really like to thank all the parents/guardians that were able to make it out for the last parent/teachers interviews. They love the involvement that is shown and invite you all back whenever you can make it.

So how is the December Challenge going so far for everyone? Their challenge this month is to make a boat out of a milk carton. Hopefully everyone is having fun with this and making some very interesting projects.

There’s a new cookbook out now that the kindergartens through to Grade 6 have all been involved in making. They all have brought family recipes from home to add to their cookbooks and now on sale for $20 per book. If interested in purchasing one or more please call the school at 403-742-5187 and put your order in right away. They have 200 printed so far, and they must order more if needed, immediately to get them back in time for Christmas or they will show up late. So make sure you phone the school immediately and order your copy now. This is a fundraiser for the school and it sounds like a fantastic one, so make sure you don’t miss out. A big thank you goes out to all the students that put their hard work into bringing recipes to the school and organizing this fantastic fundraiser.

The Old Tyme Dance Club here in Botha tells us the New Years Dance is running from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on December 31 and open to all age groups, including children, so everyone is invited to come and have fun. Music is from the “Country Gems Band” and this is a fantastic band. Instead of potluck this time they will be having it catered by “Sarah Catering”, so please for more information call 403-741-9861 as soon as possible as tickets sell out fast. Come on out everyone for a great time.
