CLASS DONATIONS


The room parents for each classroom will be making plans for activities that involve your child. These activities include parties for Halloween, Valentine's Day, and an end of the year celebration. To help make these events successful, we are collecting voluntary contributions to fund these activities. Donations will be collected at the grade level.
