- Odyssey of the Mind
Our Moore Square Odyssey of the Mind team has qualified for the world’s competition! Now they need your help to get there–all the way in Ames, IA. They earned 1st place at regionals and 3rd place at the state competition, and they’ve been working hard ever since to take their best work to Iowa. Now all you have to do to help them is eat! On May 5, you can eat at either (or both! lunch and dinner, anyone?) of two local restaurants: Bibibop (Cary, near Crossroads Target) and City BBQ (any of three locations: Cary, Garner, Lake Boone Trail).
At Bibibop, use the code BIBIFUNDRAISER if you’re ordering online. When ordering at the store, show the attached flyer or this Facebook event page.
At City BBQ, use the code FundA if you’re ordering online. When ordering at the store, show the attached flyer or this Facebook event page.
Please share these opportunities with your friends, and thank you for supporting our OM team!
There are only 8 yearbooks left for purchase! No more can be ordered once we sell out. Order yours now at jostens.com. Yearbooks will be delivered to the school in mid-May.
