Cathy Chamberlain and I met with Kim Bushman to discuss the Fourth grade Christmas Party which will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 15th from 1:30 – 2:40pm. The event will take place in the Middle School commons which is right above my office and they will go to recess immediately following the party.
We will need approximately 10 parents to help set up, clean up, and man the party. That’s 10 parents total and not 10 for each part of set up, clean up, and the party…
The party will be as follows:
Free play (approx 20 minutes)
Set up will take place at approximately 1pm and tear down will be from 2:40 till dismissal.
We took the food list and tried to divide it equally. When tasking each item, please make sure you collect enough for 56-60 children. If more than one person wants to bring an item, just make sure the total for that item equals 56-60 children. The only exception would be the cider and fruit/veggie trays. I’ve indicated an amount if different than 56-60.
Fruit tray 1 large or 2 medium
Pretzel reindeers (basically, pretzels dipped in chocolate)
Water (small bottles)
Cookies (any variety) 5 dozen *NO NUTS PLEASE
Paper plates and napkins
Veggie Tray 1 large or 2 medium
40 cinnamon sticks
Egg Nog 1 gallon
Red and Green table clothes
Apple Cider 2 gallons
Scones (any flavor) *NO NUTS PLEASE
Large Gingerbread men (from Costco or BJ’s) 60 total
Red, White, Green tube frosting (4 of each color)
Cups (hot/cold cups)
You can drop off non-perishable items to me from now till the 15th. Perishable items can be dropped off the morning of the 15th.
Please provide me a list of volunteers from your classroom.
Thanks for all you do to make our Fourth grade the best grade in the Lower School…
