Please bring photos by Oct. 28th and hand them to their teacher.
- Children should each bring a piece of fruit for the altar on Oct. 29th or 30th for the deceased to enjoy.
- Each classroom please either contribute a class donation of $30, so we can purchase the flowers in bulk at the DTLA flower mart. Or, contribute four bunches of marigold flowers on Oct. 28th. Please put any contributions in the envelope on the door.

Thank you, to everyone who has already signed up to clean.
Our class is still in need of it's own vacuum. Please consider donating any spare vacuum you may have.
