Student Council is also currently collecting hats, scarves, gloves and mittens to be donated first to any Fouse students in need and then to Westerville Caring and Sharing. Donations may be placed on the tree in the foyer at Fouse.
All donations are greatly appreciated! Thank you for your support!
Winter Classroom Parties - Wednesday, 12/20
Lead Room Parents in each classroom are starting to plan your students' Winter Classroom Parties, which are scheduled for Wednesday, 12/20, at 2:30pm (10:30am for AM K classes). As mentioned last week, due to the overwhelmingly positive response we have received from including an aspect of community service in our recent classroom parties, the decision has been made in partnership with Mr. Stranges to include community service in all parties going forward, starting with this Winter Classroom Party. During the party, this will simply mean that one of the stations will be dedicated to completing the community service project of the Lead Room Parents choosing and then the other standard games, crafts and snacks will take place at the remaining stations.
Please keep an eye out for communication from them soon regarding any assistance they may need and if you would like to volunteer and/or attend during the party, the Lead Room Parents will be gathering a list of attendees so that they can let the office know who to expect that day. Our students are looking forward to this memorable event - thanks for your support!
