Gingerbread Houses...

We will be building Gingerbread Houses with our 6th grade buddies next Friday. Both classes are requesting supplies so that each student can create their own house and setting. Please provide at least 1 shoe box for your child to bring the house home in. If you have extras, please feel free to send them in as well. We will need many boxes of graham crackers and containers of frosting. Other supplies parents can send in to help are:
sprinkles
red hots
m&m's
jelly beans
pretzels
coconut (for snow)
chocolate kisses
lollipops
ice cream cones (trees)
wafer cookies
candy canes
fruit snacks

Thank you for helping make this experience so much fun after our Gingerbread unit!

Spaghetti Dinner...

Our first Spaghetti Dinner is this Tuesday! I will be giving a ticket to your student while noticing good behavior or a kind act the next 2 days. Please do not pay for your student. Adults are $5.00 and other children are $1.00. You have time to pay the next 2 days. I would love to see as many of you as can make it! It is always a blessing for me to see my kindy's outside of school!
