Just an update on our Valentines Day party. It will be Thursday February 9th at 10:30 (during the half day). Arrowhead decided the half day would be the easiest day to have the big event. :) If your child will be gone, they can still make a box (or bag) and bring it into the classroom to collect valentines!
This year your child make make a valentines box to bring in. (we will talk about this in class, we haven't yet!) Please make sure the box has an opening for students to slip a card inside.
Parents, this is our only classroom party for the year so If you would like to volunteer your time to help with 'minute to win it' rotations and the ice cream sundae station that would be wonderful. Our classroom is going to make a list of items we need for the party and each student will be assigned one small item to bring (either for the ice cream station or minute to win it games).
Please e-mail me back if you would like to come in and/or volunteer for the party!
I will be sending home our class list tomorrow. in case you need it now, here it is:
The party will last until 11:30.
Thank you in advance! Let me know if you have any questions. I am still planning our rotations, however I believe we will have about 3 and will need a little help with the ice cream sundae bar. :)
This is where you can get up-to-date information about our classroom!
