October Celebration 2018

Hello Kindergarten parents,

http://www.luckypotluck.com/potluck/OctoberCelebration2018

Above is a link to sign up to bring snacks or treats for our class October Celebration. On Wednesday October 31, 2018, our kindergarten class will be celebrating the fall season at 10:00 am. If parents would like to sign-up to donate items for our class party I have added some recommendations to the site. But if there is something else you would like to bring you can also add your own item. Parents are welcome to have some treats with us and watch a spooky movie (probably a Scooby Doo or Chipmunks cartoon). Please arrive at 10:00 am to get let into the school. If you can’t attend the party and still want to donate something for the party, you can drop it off that morning. We will be having a Halloween Costume parade following our class party around 11:30 to 12:00 pm in the Taft Gym. Students can leave after the parade. As a reminder, we do have students with allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, and strawberries. We have 22 students in our class.

 

Thank you,

Ms. Morrow
