Class Announcments

October 19, 2011

Hello parents! On October 31st we will be hosting a classroom halloween party. I will be sending home a sign-up list of items needed as well as a volunteer sign-up and will ask that you return by Monday October 24th. Our students are not allowed to wear costumes to school, but we will allow them to wear them during the party. Please pack their costumes in their backpacks and they will be allowed to put them on when we return to the room after specials, before the party begins. We will begin the party at 2pm and will have a spooktacular time until school ends at 3pm! If you have any questions feel free to call or email me!

PS. When volunteering to bring food, please keep in mind our classroom allergies of peanuts and wheat! We want all of our children to be able to enjoy all the yummy treats!
