Our Halloween party is this Thursday, October 31st. If you have not done so, please send in a bag of candy or goodies for your child to trick or treat amongst the class. Remember to keep a close eye on the ingredients due to severe peanut allergy in our class. It doesn’t have to be candy, you can send in stickers, glow sticks, bracelets etc to share amongst the class. Thanks you!
