Julianne’s mom (Ms. Theis) has volunteered to be our class parent this year. I am sure she is going to be reaching out to all of you for assistance in sending in treats for our class parties. Additionally, I am going to be collecting $10 from each family to cover the cost of supplies for our crafts. A letter will be going home regarding this. Please respond as soon as possible.
