End of Year Party

Dear parents,

With our 2016-17 school year coming to an end, it’s time for school-wide end of year parties. Students get to say their goodbyes, relax and have fun with friends! Our end of year party in Mrs. Cobb's class is set for Thursday, JUNE 1st at 9:30AM.

The theme for our end of year celebration will be a PAJAMA PARTY! Children will be allowed to wear their pajamas to school and parents are welcome to attend the party. We will have fun snacks, drinks and activities. It is also an early release day and parents are free to check students out early, after the party. We look forward to seeing you there!
