Mariah D. & Camron B.!

On this day in 1835, the New York Sun newspaper published the first of six articles that announced the discovery of life on the moon! These articles were known as The Great Moon Hoax. It was reported that unicorns, 2-legged beavers, and winged humanoids that looked like bats were discovered — all not true!

Main Entree: Macaroni & Cheese; Tator Tots; Green Beans
Tomorrow's Breakfast: Omelets

A la Carte prices have increased this year ~ Dole juices are $1.25; extra french fries are 75; most chips are 50.

Today will be an outside day. You will be asked if you want to participate in the following: walk & talk, football, swings/monkey bars, basketball, soccer, or jump rope. Standing around is not permitted!

Open House was a huge success last night! Thank you to everyone who attended as well as those who volunteered their time to help out. We served over 300 hot dog dinners!
