Wreath Sale Finale:
Please Buy and Sell Wreaths and Turn in Tags and Money!
This is the final week of the Pathfinder wreath fundraiser. We have many beautiful wreaths in the workshop and two wreath nights coming up. We need to buy and sell these awesome creations! Please pick one up for family, friends and neighbors.
For “what to do with your wreath tags” please see the blog post on our website:
Pajama Reading Day— tomorrow!
That’s right! Tomorrow—December 12th—your kids can wear their pajamas, and bring their stuffies and blankets. The teachers will make opportunities for cozy reading time during the day. Pajamas must be clean, but bed-head is ok.
Craft Fair —this Friday—December 13th!
Prepare to be amazed at this Friday’s annual Pathfinder craft fair! Kids will visit the fair with their classes during the day and have the opportunity to come back in the evening. Be fair warned that many booths sell out or don’t come back for the evening. Send your kiddos with some money and sellers, don’t forget to bring extra money to make change! Questions, comments, or concerns? Contact Rita or Mckinsey at:
email@example.com or 206-937-5160
