We will have a Christmas party with a breakfast theme on December 14. Please send a stocking with your child this week. Each student is asked to send $5.00 to cover food for the party. Jolene will be sending out a SignUp Genius for help with supplies. We will not be exchanging gifts; however, I would love to fill the stockings with fun items. Please send in stocking stuffers for 19 students or enough to fill 11 boy stockings or 8 girl stockings. You are welcome to send goody bags or things to go under the tree for the boys and girls if you'd like as well.
Polar Express Day is coming soon. This will be a pajama day for us. I'll provide a special snack on this day as well as part of our compliments day treat.
