Our Third Grade Easter parties will be on March 29 from 8:30-9:30! We will have an Easter brunch and will exchange eggs (same idea as Valentine’s Day). Students will need an Easter bag or basket.

Each student will need to bring: a small egg for each student in the class (19 Total).

The egg can be filled with a treat, such as wrapped candy, erasers, Hershey’s Kisses, etc. No candy should contain nuts.

Please be sure to tape eggs closed.
