Other Important Information
Secret Santa: the students requested to have a Secret Santa Exchange at the end of the Victorian party, and drew names last week.  If your student drew a name, they are now obligated to bring a gift.  Students need to wrap gifts in Victorian style (fabric, brown paper, old fashion paper, etc – not in “modern” christmas paper – you can use paper grocery bags with the writing towards the inside).  Make sure this happens..thank you.

Victorian Party (December 20th) from 8:15-12pm: Students are required to come in some type of Victorian era costume for the Final (Party).  They will present their character, participate in Victorian entertainment, then have a sit down meal.

If you signed up to send in food, please make sure it is ready to serve.  It does not need to be in a “pretty” dish.  We will be plating the food for the students.  But please make sure it is ready to be plated (slice & diced if needed).
Thank you so much for signing up to support our celebration!   Follow this link to see what you signed up to bring, or to sign up to help with the party!  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0F45A4AA28A1FE3-victorian
