Chili's Spirit Night Redo on Tuesday, October 4, 11 am - 10 pm

As many of you know, Monday's Spirit Event at Chili's did not go as planned. The restaurant had a water heater break and thus had to close the restaurant around noon. They have expressed their sincere apologies for this untimely event, and for not notifying us when it occurred. The PTO would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of the families that attempted to dine at Chili's for this event, and we are so sorry for the inconvenience it likely caused! Chili's has agreed to reschedule our Spirit Event to this coming Tuesday, October 4. This will be an all day event, with Chili's donating 15% of generated sales, indicated by mentioning that you are there in support of Blue Mountain or by presenting the flyer. They have already collected school supplies that our school will receive, and they will continue to do so up through our event on Tuesday, giving away a coupon for free chips and salsa to whomever donates school supplies. Thank you so much for your support!
