End of the Year Celebration

We will serve lunch to the kids (Chick-fil-A boxes) and then we will have stations set up outdoors or in each classroom for the classes to rotate around. There will be fun activities planned at each station – Dance, Limbo, Outdoor Fun, Popsicle/Karaoke, Minute to Win It, Beach Ball Autograph. We are asking for a donation from each family to help us to pay for the food and supplies needed to make this party successful. If each family is willing to contribute $7 towards the party, we should be able to cover the cost of every child. Please send in your donation (we can only accept cash) in an envelope to your child's teacher labeled "End of Year Party" by May 12thWe are also in need of volunteers to help run stations. If you are volunteer trained and willing to help, be on the lookout for an email from Mrs. Hayno. She has graciously volunteered to coordinate all of our party helpers and supplies. Thank you for helping make our End of the Year Celebration great for the kids!
