On December 5th we will have our Winter General Meeting at 5:30 pm at BRE. We will also be painting ornaments at this event. If you wish to paint ornaments be sure to send in the RSVP slip that was sent home with your child as quantities are limited.

During the week of December 8-11 your child will have the opportunity to visit the shoppe and get some special surprise gifts during the school day. All items are $1.50. Check with your child’s teacher for information on which day your child will be able to visit the shoppe.
