Thank you to all who helped out with Michaelmas. The kids loved it and most exclaimed this was the best day ever! We raised about $4000! This will help with field trips, a free book at the book fair for each 3rd grader, the needy, and other events that come up.
Wednesday is Halloween! The parade starts at 1:00 and the party will be directly following. Parents are welcome to come help get students ready for the parade around 12:40 and can stay for the party after. We have lots of yummy snacks to enjoy and we'll be playing a Halloween related game.
Please send your child's costume with them to school. We won't be getting ready until after lunch. Remember no blood or weapons allowed.
Michaelmas is this month believe it or not! It's scheduled for October 19th! 3rd graders need to make at least 24 items (craft) to sell. Some ideas are ornaments, holiday decorations, Halloween decorations, mini-pillows, doll blankets, jewelry, crafts with candy etc. The kids seem to have a good idea of what they're making. You can google kids crafts or craft fair items and you'll get oodles of ideas. We've talked about it in class so kids know what's expected. You can also make a baked good to go with the craft.
Please plan on sending in the craft on the Wednesday before so we may price the items and do a little show and share around the school.
Also, think about how to display the craft to make it attractive, like pretty tablecloth, display board, Christmas tree, etc.
We will be having our feast after the selling. I think we've got most items except for gingerbread. If anyone's interested, please let me know.
Parents are welcome to come help out any time during the day.
