Class Parties

If you would like for your students to have class parties this year, you need to respond to Mrs. Ross about the email she sent.

Here is her email if you lost it!

Hello Everyone,

My name is LuAnn Ross and along with Brittney Morgan and Blanca Mcbee we are sharing the duties as Room Mom's. We plan to help Mrs. Whitener and you as parents as much as we can by taking off some the load and making life easier. For all parties, Field Day, Silent Auction and Teacher Appreciation Day, except for Valentine cards all food, drinks, paper products and gifts will be provided. We will need $45 per student to be sent in by Friday Oct 28 in an envelope marked room mom/students name and give it to Mrs. Whitener. Keep in mind that if you need volunteer hours, help would be appreciated before and after all events.

Parties will be-

Fall Nov 11

Christmas Dec 21

Valentine's Day Feb 14

School's Out May 25

Field Day TBA

Silent Auction TBA

Teacher's Appreciation TBA

Thank you for your cooperation!
