NEW this year are our Teacher Time donations. It’s going to be “All Fun and Games” at the Parent Social and we have some great fun and games for your kids too! Some will be offered as “pay to play” – available in advance of the event – and others will be silent auction items offered at the event. Please talk with your children about these terrific Teacher Time items and consider signing up for them next week via the Blast or at the silent auction.
