Ms. Gray needs White Christmas Lights STAT!

Can you send in some SMALL WHITE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS for PE class on Monday?

Dear Parents/Guardian-

I am looking for 15-20 sets of Christmas Lights (the tiny little bulb ones) for Cosmic Bowling next week. I prefer only WHITE only lights. I will be stringing them up around the gym for a MidnightBowling effect in my gym. Once the unit is over, then you can get them back. I will put tape with your name around the Christmas lights to make sure your son/daughter takes them home after we are done borrowing them for a week. Please bring them by Tuesday, April 1st .

Thank you,

Ms. Gray

P.E Teacher @ K-5 S.T.E.M.

Ms. Graves' Kindergarten students cut circles from their choice of felt colors and stitched them together to make floral blooms.  They also wrote their names on green felt leaves which were then embroidered in white thread.  The flowers are mounted on a burlap background and framed.
