NEW!! Tree issues to be discussed today include:
SEE â€œTREE NOTES FROM THURSDAY NIGHTâ€ ABOVE.
Merry Messages: I am sending home a flyer today that describes a quick fund raiser we are doing at the tree. Mona Shores Merry Messages include a couple sprigs of holiday greens, a bit of shiny, festive garland, a candy cane, and a card you can personalize with your own special message. They are a great way to recognize, congratulate or simply say, â€œI love You!â€ to family or friends. Plus, their compact size (around 8 inches tall) makes them easier to handle during a performance than a bulky bouquet. Merry messages can be purchased for only $2 at the Product Sales table before any Tree Performance.
AFTER TREE PARTY:Fircanoâ€™s After Tree Party We are taking money (from people who signed up to go) until TODAY without penalty. $8 per person includes a pizza buffet and pop. 187 students have signed up to go, and some still need you to pay.
