Celebrating Parents' Day (July 23) with Freebies


What can you thank your parents for? Does your list go on and on...? 

It's easy to take parents for granted. Maybe your parent is the first person you turn to for answering questions or giving advice. Maybe your classroom parents are the first you turn to when you need extra supplies. Maybe you have only memories of your parents to celebrate. Sunday, July 23, is the time to thank parents and guardians for all they do. 






Pick up the Parents' Day Activities packet:


Thanks, Mom and Dad!
