Hi 5th Grade Families,

Please check out this flyer for the exciting things going on this week!

End of the Year Party ~ Harry Potter Theme!

As many of you know, I have been reading the Harry Potter books aloud to our class! This has been such a fun experience for the students, and myself! To wrap up the year, I suggested that we have a Harry Potter Party on June 7th!

There will be treats, beverages, a home-made costume contest and a few other surprises! The students have already chosen who they would like to dress up as, and they will be "judged" by the most creative Hand-Made costume! Please, do not run out to the store or to amazon to purchase a costume, as we want it to have a flair of authenticity! :) Wigs are not needed, as we all have an imagination and beards can be made with yarn/string.

Please encourage your children to create their own one-of-a-kind costume! Some students have also elected to wear a generic "wizard/muggle" costume which will be awesome as well!

Our fantastic room parents will be letting you know what you can bring to help all students have a great time! I will post plenty of pictures, so aside from the room parents, we are asking that no other parents attend. :)

Looking forward to an exciting time!
