PTO membership drive slated for Thursday


PERRIN – Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving feast.

We had a quiet one with my sister Jane Cramer, from Granbury, and her grandson, Andrew Cramer, from Dallas, joining us. Last Saturday Sean Fowler and friend, Meghan, of Arlington, Scott, Becky, Haylee and Kaycee Fowler (in from college at MACU) and Jo, Jeff and Jonathan Brumfield (in from college at Oklahoma City University) all came down to help move Fred’s old pickup from Hamilton’s garage to our barn. We ordered pizza from the Pirate’s Cove and enjoyed a good lunch and a brief visit.

There will be a PTO membership drive on Thursday in the elementary gym beginning at 6 p.m. There are no dues to belong to the Perrin-Whitt PTO. At this time students are encouraged to dress in their PJ’s and get a picture of them sitting on Santa’s lap. They will also enjoy watching a Christmas movie following picture taking.

The Perrin-Whitt PTO is sponsoring the Penguin Patch Gift Shop, which will be open this week in the elementary school’s Room 16. This annual event helps elementary students to buy gifts for their parents, siblings and grandparents and keep it secret! All gifts are under $15.

There was a recent National Honor Society induction ceremony for selected new members: Makaila Brooks, Cassie Hodges, Casey Cannon, Crystal Crisp, Kali Parker, Eric Hall, Haylee Fowler, Katie Blakeley, Meggan Jump and Lily Hodges.

Perrin Horticulture Department is having a Christmas Poinsettia Sale with the cost of $15 per plant. There are three choices: traditional red, winter rose and red glitter. All proceeds benefit the Jan Coquat Memorial Scholarship Fund. Pre-orders are accepted by contacting Loren Sell at (940) 798-2008, ext. 22.

Storytime at the Perrin school library is Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. All preschool aged students are welcome.

As the holiday time draws near don’t forget to donate something for the Mamaw’s House. They have a drop off box for stuffed toys in the Perrin Post Office until Dec. 15. They are accepting donations of new small to medium stuffed toys and small lap/throw blankets. These will be delivered to homes in the Perrin area and if enough toys are donated, they will reach out to other rural areas in the county. Weldon and Dorothy Cranford are the caretakers of the project. You may send toys or monetary donations to Mamaw’s House, P.O. Box 444, Perrin, TX 76486.

The Perrin basketball JV boys and varsity teams will all travel to Forestburg on Tuesday with the games beginning at 4:30 p.m. The JV girls will play at Chico the same day for a 4 p.m. game.

The Perrin Varsity Tournament is Dec. 6-8, with the first game beginning at 3 p.m. The JV boys will play in the Millsap tournament Dec. 6-8, games also beginning at 3 p.m.

The junior high basketball A girls and A and B boys teams will play at Garner Dec. 3 with the games beginning at 5 p.m.

Thought for the week: It’s almost that special time of the year; you might as well begin your Christmas hinting early.
