Your child may bring their favorite stuffed animal and blanket or towel to lay with while we watch the Polar Express. Everything must fit in your child’s book bag. – Thursday, December 14th

Class Party
Our class party will be on Friday, December 15th from 1:30-2:15. I have contacted parents who have been volunteer trained to help with the party and will be setting them up at stations to help at the party. If you volunteered to donate anything, please send in items by the 14th (unless they are hot/cold items) so I can get an inventory and pick up any additional items needed that evening. Hot/cold items may be dropped off by 1:00 in the office on December 15th.
Thank you for all you do!
