The Landing School’s PTA and SEPTA held a bingo-and-pizza fundraiser at the school on Feb. 15, officiated by principal Benjamin Roberts. Participants got to choose from a variety of prizes laid out on the stage in the auditorium, which doubles as the school’s cafeteria and gymnasium.
A projected computer randomly selected which bingo squares to call out. Roberts announced them enthusiastically, sometimes handing the microphone to a student and prompting them to read out the letter and number pairs.
After the first round ended quickly, it took a while before another winner called out, “Bingo,” but students and parents alike eagerly hunched over their cards, waiting for their turn.
Landing PTA Vice President Kathleen Kielczewski said that proceeds from the bingo night would go toward the PTA’s projects, including cultural nights, school picnics, and the Mr. Softee ice cream truck that the PTA pays to park outside the school at the end of the year.
