    Author's Tea
    Students may dress in their Sunday best for the Author's Tea celebration. :) We will waltz into the cafeteria once all the parents have arrived in true Hollywood style down the red carpet. Parents, you are encouraged to take pictures of your star! We will stand as a class for a group picture, then be released to parents/friends for the "tea" part. Because all the classes donate, there will be breakfast type goodies to snack on. After a while we will head back to our classroom to read our published pieces of writing. We can't wait to see you to celebrate our 4th grade accomplishments!


    Bizarre Bazaar
    Next Tuesday is our big trade/exchange day. If students are bringing any food, please make sure the items are individually wrapped. Students will need a poster to explain their good/service. I encourage the kiddos to bring a small box or tray to carry items to the other classrooms. They'll need a container or bag to bring home their new items in as well. I still have many students who have not yet turned in their Bizarre Bazaar permission slip. If you have misplaced this, please write your child's name, the good or service they will be trading, and your signature on a piece of paper and turn that in. Thank you! It's a very fun day, and we don't want to have to leave anyone out!
