Gingerbread House Party!

Hello, Giraffe Families!

It is hard to believe that very soon it will be time for our annual Gingerbread House Party! It is a tradition in second grade to build and decorate gingerbread houses in the days before our holiday break, and this year we will be building our houses on Monday, December 21st at 1:00 pm and we will decorate our houses on Wednesday, December 23rd at 9:15 am. We will only need 4 volunteers to help us build our houses on the 21st (they will need to set for at least 24 hours before we decorate), but all family and friends of the giraffe class are welcome to join us for decorating on the morning of the 23rd!

Each of you will be receiving an email from me via Sign Up Genius to sign up for volunteering and/or bringing in supplies if you are able (Note: For many of the supplies, we will need more than 1 of that item, so more than 1 family could donate that item).  I will also list our supplies below:
  • 4 boxes of graham crackers
  • 8 cans of Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Frosting (White)
  • 2 bags of small gumdrops
  • 2 bags of peppermint candies (round red and white ones)
  • 1 large bag of mini marshmallows (colored if possible)
  • 1 large bag of Skittles
  • 2 bags of red licorice sticks or whips
  • 1 large bag of Life Savers
  • 1 large box of Fruit Loop cereal (generic is fine)
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips (regular size, lactose free)
  • 1 bag of “window pane” (square) pretzels
  • 1 bag of pretzel sticks
  • Ice cream cones (cone shaped) enough for 18 students
  • 20 bowls (paper or plastic)
  • 20 large oval Chinet plates
  • 20 plastic knives
Click here to sign up for volunteering on the 21st or to bring in one of the supplies! As always, thank you for all of your support :)
