Dear Parents,

Our class is so excited about our Christmas party coming up this week! We have been busy making Christmas crafts to prepare for this special day. Below are some details you will need to know.

Where: Room 107 (Mrs. Bradley’s Classroom)

Time: 9:00-10:00

(Party set-up begins at 8:30. Please come early and help if you are able to.)

We will have a “Penny Christmas” in our classroom.  Each student can bring 20 small gifts. For example: erasers, pencils, candy canes, ornaments….anything inexpensive that will be a special gift. We have 11 girls and 9 boys. The students will be able to open their gift bags at the party.  Please send the 20 small gifts to school, with your child, by Tuesday, December 18th. During the party, the students will open their Christmas bags full of goodies from their friends.

We will also enjoy snacks and a few crafts and games.  If you are able to be here for the Christmas party, we would love for you to come celebrate with our class. Once the party is over, you are welcome to take your child home with you.  There will be a sign-out sheet in my classroom. 

We are so blessed to have so many parents willing to help with our party. I have asked Amber Apple and Jessica Shields to help with planning/organizing the party. They are in the process of contacting parents about items or help needed for our class Christmas party. Please let me know if you have not been contacted and would like me to pass on your number to them.

Thank you for all of your help! You’re always welcome to call me if you need anything or have any questions at 903-291-2171.

Thank You,

Mrs. Bradley
