Attention all Room Parents:
We now have an updated Room Parent Resource Notebook
available in the front office. Look for a purple notebook with
Room Parent Resource written on it. This notebook gives you
ideas and suggestions for helping out your teacher and planning
parties. Everything inside has been approved by Mrs. Mabee
and can be used by you. If you design any other letters, please
remember you must first get them approved. You may take
anything out and copy it, but please return it to the notebook for
the next person. If you have any other good ideas that have
worked well, please place them in the notebook for other Room
Parents. We are looking for party game ideas, crafts, etc. Thank
you for your time and involvement in our school!
