Spencer Butte will be hosting our first Trivia Night on Thursday, January 31st, from 6:00 to 8:30pm. Dinner will be available from 6:00 to 6:45 for two dollars per person. Trivia will be from 7:00 to 8:30 at ten dollars per team, with a maximum of eight people on a team. Trivia prize baskets totaling over $400 in gift cards and admission vouchers will be divided among the top three scoring teams.


Throughout this week, we have been giving our students an opportunity to answer trivia questions in their classrooms during the morning announcements. To continue this opportunity with parents, we will be seeing which parent can call in to the front office (541-790-8300) first to correctly answer a trivia question. The first caller to call in, asking for the “Quiz Master” with the correct answer will win 6 raffle entries into our raffle (see raffle details below).  The parent/guardian trivia question is: Dendrology is the study of what?



During Trivia Night we will be drawing winners for our three amazing raffle baskets. Tickets are currently for sale for $1 each or 6 for $5, up until 8:00 pm on Trivia night.  You do not need to be present to win.  All proceeds from our raffle go to our Spencer Butte Mentoring Program, so come on in and buy you tickets!
