*Reminders and Important Information*

Our Easter party will be Thursday, March 29th, from 11-12. Thank you to everyone for helping with refreshments and party items. Please send 24 plastic, candy filled eggs to school by Wednesday. Please make sure the eggs have candy that is individually wrapped and that the eggs are taped closed. Due to the eggs being outside, please use candy that will not melt. We are looking forward to this fun day!!
