Gold Rush Day Update

Dear Parents,
Thank you so much for completing papers to volunteer for Gold Rush Day.  We are grateful for your overwhelming support!  If you were selected for volunteer, you should have received a confirmation paper this week with your assignment.  Check with your child for this paper.  If you have not received a letter, we do not need anymore help on this day.  Again, thank you so much for offering your help.  

All parents should check their child's homework folder for a yellow WANTED AD that went home on Tuesday.  We do need help with dessert and some other donations.  Email Mrs. Slezinger if you are able to help.  Thank you.

Gold Rush Day is Wednesday!  Your child will receive a cowboy/cowgirl hat and bandana to wear, but they need your help to complete the outfit.  Jeans, plaid shirts, long dresses, and Old West costumes are perfect for the event.  Remember to have your child wear school appropriate shoes because there will be lots of walking and dancing!  

If you have not sent in your $20 donation to help with all the costs of this fun event, please do so.  It is not possible without everyone's help.  If you have any other questions, please let me know.
