I'm writing to let all of our 4th and 5th grade parents know about a special afterschool activity time that is going to take place on Friday March 10 from 3-5 PM. Each trimester our 8th grade students are challenged to independently demonstrate how they can achieve our mission statement value of "contributing positively to their community." We have two girls who have chosen to organize this activity afternoon for two purposes - one to offer our 4th / 5th graders a chance for a special fun afternoon of food and games, while at the same time having this be a fundraiser for an organization that supports providing educational opportunities for young girls in third world countries. Funds will be raised from a small entrance fee as well as concessions that will be sold.
There will be more information coming next week including a permission slip / participation form - but for now just wanted to be sure that you knew about this potentially fun event to put on your son or daughter's calendar. You may have heard about this since the girls had originally hoped to organize it for this week - but in order to be sure that it is well planned have chosen to postpone and do a bit more work over the next few weeks. There will be nothing special afterschool this Friday - have to wait a few more weeks until March 10 :-)
