3rd grade parents
The International Festival will be on Saturday, March 16th. Each grade will sponsor a basket to be raffled off at the end of the event as an easy and fun way to raise funds for school enrichment. Please consider helping the 3rd grade, even in a small way. Small donations can add up to some incredible baskets!
Please bring all donations to school by Friday, March 8th.
The third grade is assigned Asia! Asia is a massive continent with over 40 countries including China, Russia, India, Saudi Arabia, Iran, North & South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore, to name just a few. For a full list of countries, check out this link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Asian_countries_by_GDP
This means there are many different things to include in our Asia-themed basket. Here are some ideas of items to contribute. Cash donations are also welcome as it will allow us to pool the money to buy some bigger items for the basket.
