Christmas Parties
Thursday, December 21
Our Christmas Parties will be held during our regular school day hours, so the children should come to school at their normal start times with the AM party going from 10:30-11:15  and the PM party going from 2:00-2:45.  In the spirit of giving, I am asking that the children NOT bring in candy treat bags to pass out, but instead bring in a canned good for the Itasca Food Pantry.
All adults are welcome, but siblings are not allowed.  ALL visitors for our classroom parties must enter the building through the main school entrance off of Rush Street.  Everyone must sign in and wear a Visitor’s Badge.
