Tween Time This Sunday at 9 am

AND . . . there will be a lock in December 29th. Students will arrive at 7:30 PM. There will be pizza for dinner. We’ll have an escape room game as well as crafts and a Christmas movie. Parents will pick up their Tweens at 9:00 AM Saturday morning after their breakfast. Parents, watch your email for permission slips. RSVP’s, yes and regrets, will need to be sent to Pam Bryson by December 15th due to Christmas season activities.
