Friday Fort/Electronic Afternoon

The kids have been working hard to earn Outstanding certificates to get a special reward afternoon. Well, they did it! So, we talked about what we wanted to do and this is what they came up with.

Forts- They may bring in a blanket to construct a fort. They may also bring in a stuffed animal if they would like. During their fort time, they will be doing quiet reading and they want to be cozy. 🙂

Electronics- They may bring in an electronic device to play with after recess. If they choose to do this they will be responsible for taking care of it. The school will not have any responsibility for lost or broken devices, so take care of what you choose to send in.
