Tomorrow, October 30, is picture retake day!
Halloween Party: Parade will begin at 2:30
Classroom parties will be from 3:00-3:30
Please send your child's costume to school in their backpack. They will change after lunch.
Families, as of now, I have no one to help with a simple craft for our party. We need two families to bring a simple craft form Michaels to do with the children. If you need ideas, please talk to me. Last year, we made slime and made a simple pumpkin craft a parent found at the craft store.
