Virtual Bingo Q&As

HVPTO Virtual BINGO Q & A

  • What is HVPTO Virtual BINGO?
    • This is an online game in which players mark off numbers on cards as the numbers are drawn randomly by a caller, the winner being the first person to mark off five numbers in a row or another required pattern.
  • Why are we playing Virtual BINGO?
    • The goal of HVPTO Virtual BINGO is to unite and entertain the HV Community: all students, staff, and family members are invited to participate!
  • When is BINGO?
    • Our first date for virtual BINGO is:
      • Friday, March 5 at 6:00 pm. Be sure you are setup and ready to play!
  • How do I sign up to play?
    • BINGO cards can be obtained at hoosicvalleypto.com and signup will end the day before the event (Thursday March 4 at midnight). We do have a limited number of cards available and will cap registration when we reach that point – signup early!
  • How much does it cost? 
    • Since we are all learning how to host and play virtual BINGO, there is no cost to play, however, the PTO always welcomes donations of your time and/or money via our website. All cards obtained can be used for all rounds of BINGO on the night of the event – we are hoping to get in 3-4 rounds but will end around 7:30.
  • I registered – How do I get my cards?
    • After signing up to obtain your tickets, you will receive a confirmation email acknowledging your desire to participate. On the day of the BINGO event (around 2:00pm) you will receive another email containing links to access your BINGO cards and link to the Zoom meeting where we will call the game.
  • Can I play online and listen to the Zoom calls at the same time?
    • Yes! On most mobiles and tablets it’s possible to have Zoom running in the background while the browser is open so you can listen to the BINGO calls and mark your card on the same device. (Touch or click the numbers to mark your card when playing online.) Alternately, you can print your cards ahead of time or even copy them by hand onto a piece of paper – just be sure to write the card number that is assigned to your cards so we can confirm winning cards.
  • Can I play several BINGO cards at once on the same screen? 
  • Can I print the cards?
    • Yes! Watch this video demonstration to see how. After printing your cards, use coins, dried beans, small candies, etc. to mark your cards. Remember, all cards can be used for all rounds of BINGO on the night of the event!
  • How will we play?
    • Entry to the Zoom meeting (where we will call the game) will open at 6:00pm on the night of the event. The game will begin promptly at 6:10pm. If you are late to sign in you will be allowed entry between rounds. 
    • The caller will indicate how each round will be played. (Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, four corners, full card, etc.)
  • YAY!!! I HAVE BINGO! How do I announce?
    • Unmute your microphone and announce BINGO!!! Please also indicate this in the ‘chat’ feature of the Zoom meeting. The caller will check your card to confirm.
  • I’m still confused. Who can help?
    • Please email your questions to Lisa Meehan at meehanlisaj@gmail.com
  • This was AWESOME and we can’t wait to play again!
    • We are so glad you had fun! Please post your pictures and comments on our Hoosic Valley PTO Facebook page and invite all your friends to the next game of BINGO!

Amazon Wish Lists

Make a Wish Come True

Every year our teachers reach deep into their own pockets to make their classrooms special for all types of learners. This year we are sharing their Amazon Wishlists and Donors Choose Projects with our community in a hope to offset these extra costs. Please check back often, as new needs arise throughout the year. If you aren’t given the option to send to the teacher directly, feel free to mail it to the school directly referencing the teachers name. Also, don’t forget to use Amazon Smile where Hoosic Valley PTO also benefits by getting money back on every purchase.  Click on the teacher’s name below to view their list.
