We encourage you to read your handouts before class in order to be prepared for the discussion.
WE NEED AN ELMO!!!
Channel your inner Elmo! The Halloween team is looking for a volunteer to dress in costume as Elmo for the Halloween party. This person will take pictures with the kids, high five, shake hands and maybe even get a hug from those brave enough. (Costume and lunch provided. Elmo will need to be at the party from 9am-1:30pm)
HALLOWEEN PARTY, SATURDAY OCTOBER 19
Evites have been sent out so please RSVP for the event! Try to avoid the “Maybe” response if possible :)
Please note there are two different start times for this party based on your child’s age:
Monday- Friday AM classes 9:30-11:00 AM
Monday PM, Wednesday PM, Wednesday Evening, Thursday PM and Alumni Class 11:30-1:00 PM
*Baby Play Classes are welcome to either that fits their nap schedule.
This is our first family event and a “not-to-miss” party for the children, as it is scaled down to just their size. Siblings are welcome and children and parents are encouraged to come in costume (no masks or weapons please).
Tip: Bring a bag to collect any toys and goodies that your little wonder may drop on the floor. We will provide fun, games, a mini pumpkin patch, and food.
