Halloween Activity Day

Hello Room 5 Families,

We are so excited to be planning a fun celebration for our classroom on
Halloween ~ Thursday, October 31st.  

Plan on staying for the parade at 8:30 am to see all the costumes (Theme is Famous Figure) and then immediately after the parade we will begin our celebration until lunch time.  If a few of you could plan on helping that would be great!  We also have a few items that need brought in.  

Go to this link to sign up to bring items for our Halloween Party!

Thank you in advance for all of your help and support.
