Hope you have enjoyed the snow days!!!!
Winter Party update:
Mrs. Raper sent a link for parent volunteers and supplies to be sent in. For the past couple of years, our class Winter Party is over a two day period. I’ve had the kids make fleece blankets to donate to a homeless shelter. This year I would like to send them to St. Jude’s. Afterwards they enjoy Krispy Kreme Snowman donuts and juice boxes. I also have a pizza party ($3-$4 per child) and watch Home Alone. I will send a slip home the next day we return to school with more information about the pizza party!
Here is the link to sign-up to send items in or volunteer:
