Our next pep rally is Friday, June 21 at 6pm at Longfellow pool. This will be the "Chili cook off" pep rally. There will be prizes given to the top 3 chili's! We need people to go to the online sign up to sign up to bring chili. We also need 5 chili judges (you can't be a judge if you or your family brings chili!).
If you do not wish to bring chili, you will bring a dish to share (to serve 10-15) as follows:
Last name starts with:
A-Ji...bring a salad (green salad, veggie salad, fruit salad, etc)
Jo-Si...bring a side dish (could include corn bread or other bread, chili toppings like shredded cheese, tortilla chips, guacamole, etc)
Sm-Z...bring dessert
Team will provide hot dogs for non-chili eaters!
 
As always, if you have questions, please let a manager know in person or by email!
 
See you at the pool!
