Friday Newsletter 12-15-17
ROOM PARENTS: Christmas classroom parties are THIS THURSDAY, 12/21 at 1:30 PM. We count on you to make our parties a success, providing/planning for refreshments and games. A list of room parents may be found on the reverse of these notes. We are expecting a “special visitor” at 9:30 on Thursday morning!
CLASSROOM CHRISTMAS GIFTS: The students will exchange gifts within the classroom. Boys should buy for boys and girls should buy for girls. The gift should be of $5 value. Please send your gifts in to the classroom.
EXTENDED CARE FAMILIES: Please make note – there will be NO AFTERNOON EXTENDED CARE SERVICES THIS THURSDAY, December 21st, after the school Christmas parties. We realize that this was not noted on the original school calendar. However, the staff has the opportunity to visit Father Pat after we dismiss at 3:00, and we would like to be able to do that, if his health permits. Morning extended care will still be available, and you WILL NOT be charged for that service if you are a normal morning extended care family.
GUN RAFFLE: If you need additional tickets contact Josh Vandike, Jay Harms, or Greg Koetting. Mr. V’s tickets are available at the office, along with more flyers, if you need those. The first drawing will be January 20th.
CHRISTMAS CAROLING @ CAPITOL plans have been cancelled. We just received the flyer with info. on Thursday, which is on the reverse of these notes. Perhaps some parents that work at the Truman Building or in the capitol area might be interested in attending? If you do, please report back to us, so that we may plan for next year.
ELDON CHRISTMAS PARADE: Thanks to all who showed up to ride and help alongside the float last Saturday. It is always good for our students and parents to get out there and represent Our Lady of the Snows School. Special thanks to Jay Harms, for the float, his time, and use of his vehicle & trailer.
PULL THOSE BOX TOPS! With all the Christmas baking and family meals this time of year, make sure you are pulling off those “Box Tops” from General Mills products. We are low on submissions this go around, so we would like EVERYONE to start sending those in. Look at it this way - every time you throw one away, you are throwing a dime in the trash can! Our next submission will be at the end of February.
ITALIAN FEAST THEMES: All families are asked to donate items to their child’s classroom basket in preparation for the Italian Feast/Silent Auction on Feb. 3, 2018. The items should be of at least $5 value. As an alternative, you may choose to send in money, and let the classroom teacher shop for you. Please send items in as soon as possible. Themes are as follows:
PK: Car Cleaning Kit
K/1: Farm Toys/Farm Animals/Horses
2: A Day in the Park
3/4: Game Night
5/6: Family Fun Night
