Winter Parties

Winter Party Day is nearing and your help is needed!  A snack, a simple craft, and game have been planned for your student's grade level -- all supplies have been purchased and will be ready to go. The hard work is done!!!  Now, we need your help to make sure that your child's class can enjoy this very fun afternoon.  We need a few volunteers (parents, grandparents, etc) from each classroom who can attend the party and make sure all these things run smoothly.  No planning necessary!  Just handing out supplies, helping the students, cleaning up, etc.  If you could be in your child's pod by 1:00 on Wednesday December 21st to help with distributing the supplies, we would love your help!  A list of instructions will be provided to help you know the party plan.

A huge thank you to Helen Petty  for planning this entire-school event!  Please email Helen at or Stacy Dick ( to let us know if you're available (along with your teacher's name) or if you have any questions.
