Classroom Holiday Parties
We would like to continue offering a healthier balance of food at our class parties (Christmas and Valentine’s Day). Please contact the room mom for your child’s class if you would like to assist with this. We can have fun parties and enjoy healthy food at the same time! For our upcoming holiday parties on December 20th, we will use the following schedule – 10:30 K5, 1st, Irick; 12:00 2nd, 3rd, PMA, Poole; and 1:00 4th, 5th, IMA. Please make note because this is different from previous years. If your child will have an early dismissal after the party is over, be prepared to show your photo ID.
